Defending Red Bull Tennessee Knockout champion, Trystan Hart, and Mani Lettenbichler, the 2020 winner and Hard Enduro World champion, are both confirmed at the 13th annual TKO on August 19-20.

Entries for the 2023 TKO continue to grow with two of the infamous North American event’s most successful riders in recent years confirmed in the Pro class this August.

FMF KTM Factory Racing team’s Trystan Hart took his second TKO trophy in 2022 which doubled-up as his first FIM Hard Enduro World Championship win. The Canadian has also already won the 2023 AMA Hard Enduro Championship and finished third at the ’23 Erzbergrodeo for the second consecutive year.


Red Bull KTM Factory Racing’s Manuel Lettenbichler meanwhile has had a storming 2023 season so far taking wins at the Xross Hard Enduro Rally in Serbia and his second consecutive Erzberg win last month. Lettenbichler has had success at the TKO in the past with three second place finishes and a win in 2020.

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:
