Mike Brown to defend his Tennesse Knockout Crown

KTM’s Mike Brown is set to defend his title at the third annual Kenda Tennessee Knockout Hard Enduro in the US.

Brown, who has won the notoriously tough event for the past two years, enters the race this weekend, August 17/18, as the heavy favourite. However, he faces some stiff opposition with riders like Beta’s Cody Webb, Kawasaki’s Taylor Robert and Husaberg’s Russell Bobbitt among others chasing down the a piece of the $10,000 prize purse on offer.

Now returned from a mid-season broken foot, Webb is back on top form. Claiming an X Games Bronze medal at the recent Enduro-X in LA, the King of the Motos champion will be keen to add another title to his resume.

Robert – the X Games Gold medallist at Munich is also favoured for success. More than capable in extreme terrain, Robert is a solid bet for a podium result. Winner of round eight of the AMA National Enduro Championship, Bobbitt will he hoping his run of form continues to help him repeat his 2012 Knockout podium.
