Husqvarna Racing have confirmed a strong line-up for the 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout with Billy Bolt joining the US-based boys Ryder LeBlond and Colton Haaker for this year’s TKO.

Three-time SuperEnduro champion, 2018 WESS champion and 2021 FIM Hard Enduro World Championship Billy Bolt will look towards another head-to-head battle with Mani Lettenbichler at the 2023 TKO next month

Injury kept Bolt away in 2022 TKO but, like his HEWC rivals Lettenbichler and Trystan Hart, Billy will hop over the Atlantic and race the TKO ahead of the fourth HEWC round in Canada just one week later.


The US based Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team will field their two riders with Ryder LeBlond aiming for a TKO podium finish. The young Pennsylvania rider finished second in the 2022 and 2023 AMA Hard Enduro championships and was the top American finisher at the 2022 TKO event.

Colton Haaker, the five-time AMA EnduroCross champion has many TKOs under his belt but is yet to win the trophy. Expect Colton to shine brightest in the Saturday Straight rhythm run-offs.

The 2023 Red Bull Tennessee Knockout will take place at the Trials Training Center on August 18-20, 2023 and this year is a stand alone event again. That means it is not part of the Hard Enduro World Championship which visits Romaniacs next week (July 25-29) and then Red Bull Outliers in Canada the week after TKO on August 24-27 (an event where the results were reveresed last year with Mani taking a narrow win away from Hart on home soil).

TKO entries are still available for the Saturday amateur classes, including the ECR eMoto class. Click here to enter:
