The Rockstar Husqvarna team has confirmed that Graham Jarvis will be competing in the 2017 Kenda Tennessee Knockout.
Jarvis has won just about every major Extreme Enduro event in the world multiple times. His resume includes three wins at the Erzberg Rodeo, four wins at the Red Bull Sea to Sky, five wins at the Red Bull Romaniacs and five wins at the Hells Gate Enduro.
This year, he will take on the Kenda Tennessee Knockout, America’s most prestigious Extreme Enduro. Graham was due to compete at the event in 2016 but was forced to withdraw.
Graham will face four-time winner of the tenessee hard enduro, Cody Webb. The KTM rider has made the race his own in the last few years beating Jonny Walker and Wade Young along the way.
Jarvis will be joined in Tennessee by his Husqvarna team-mate, Colton Haaker. Haaker has dominated the indoor off-road racing scene lately taking two consecutive FIM SuperEnduro World championships and the 2016 AMA EnduroCross championship.
The California native certainly has the skills to compete for the win at the TKO but has not yet been able to put it together. He will be looking to change that in 2017.
The seventh annual Kenda Tennessee Knockout will take place on Saturday, August 12th (Amateurs) and Sunday, August 13th at the Trials Training Center located in Saquatchie, Tennessee.
The world’s top off-road riders are invited directly to the Sunday program. Unqualified Expert/Pro and amateur riders race on Saturday with the top finishers earning the opportunity to move on to the Sunday Expert Knockout rounds.
On Sunday, riders will compete in a very tough and spectator friendly four-round Knockout racing format.
