The 2018 Tennessee Knockout is one week away and will be stacked with more international riders then ever. The event is a single weekend National Championship which has attracted a lot of racers. We have seen all the Extreme races leading up to TKO that served as qualifiers for the final, and only race that matters in the National Championship, TKO. The American riders have all made their marks in the previous races and qualified in but some International riders have also been invited. This is what we have heard, its not set in stone until they show up but these riders have either committed or shown interest.
Speaking of Cody Webb, he is coming off a broken foot sustained at Erzberg and just started riding this week. We spoke with Cody and he is feeling confident and will be ready for TKO. He has been dominant at this race since 2013.
We can’t mention all the Americans in this post showing up because there are so many but here are some to look out for. Beta’s Jordan Ashburn just won the Battle Of The Goats last week and will be there, he has raced it many times before. Sherco rider Nick Farhinger will also be there, he won the Mad Moose TKO qualifier race a couple months back and just finished 2nd at Battle Of The Goats. Trail Jesters KTM Racing’s Ben Kelley won the Tough Like RORR qualifier and will be there. Trystan Hart will be attending his first TKO, the SRT Team rider has been winning a lot of different races this year and finished 2nd at The Last Dog Standing qualifier.
