The Red Bull Tennessee Knockout Prologue returns to Downtown Nashville for the 2024 TKO round of the Hard Enduro World Championship this August – top 16 pro riders will face off in head-to-head races on a straight rhythm enduro course on Thursday ahead of the main event.

The 14th annual Red Bull Tennessee Knockout (TKO) this August 23-25 has again chalked in a trip to Downtown Nashville on the Thursday to drop Hard Enduro slap, bang in the middle of the city and bring the spectacle of the sport to the masses.

Promising a more exciting version this year, the ‘24 TKO will then move up the road to the Sequatchie Trials Training Center for a three-day format with amateur riders setting a Hot-Lap on Friday to establish starting positions followed by two rounds of amateur racing on Saturday.

The Pro riders will kick off their weekend with a Hot-Lap on Saturday afternoon and a three round Knock Out format on Sunday. The multiple rounds of racing and course layout provide a full weekend of exciting, spectator-friendly racing.


The 2024 TKO will serve as round five of the FIM Hard Enduro World Championship and the seventh and final round of the AMA US Hard Enduro Championship. That means the top international riders such as Mani Lettenbichler, Mario Roman, Wade Young and Teodor Kabakchiev will take on the top North American riders including Trystan Hart, Cody Webb, Ryder LeBlond and Will Riordan.

Lettenbichler is currently on a 10 race FIM Hard Enduro win streak, but Hart has managed to beat him at the last two TKO events, so we can expect an epic battle for TKO supremacy between those two at least.

Sub-note to that is Cody Webb, who’s been on a run of form this season, injured his knee in the Erzberg prologue and is in doubt to close out his season at TKO.

In addition to the top pro riders, up to 500 amateur riders will take on the TKO course aiming for the AMA Grand Championship titles and class wins. The top 30 amateur riders will also earn the opportunity to compete with the world’s best riders during the Sunday pro racing. The ECR eMoto (electric motorcycle) class will also be back for the third year aiming for an AMA Grand Championship.
