Mike Brown and Colton Haaker Confirmed for Tennessee Knockout
Factory Husqvarna team ready to challenge for the podium Sequatchie, TN (August 1, 2016) – The Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing team of Mike Brown and Colton Haaker will be competing at the 2016 Kenda Tennessee Knockout. The sixth annual TKO will take place at the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, Tennessee on Sunday, August 21st.
Brown, a Tennessee native won the 2011 and 2012 TKO events to the delight of his home state fans. The former Motocross champion that has successfully converted to off-road competition can never be counted out for the win in tough conditions. He proved that in 2012 when he recovered from nearly being eliminated in the multi-round knockout format to come back and take the win.
Haaker captured the FIM SuperEnduro World Championship earlier this year so his skills and speed on difficult obstacles are without question. Haaker is also a multi-time AMA EnduroCross main event winner and took the 2015 King of the Motos win. He has competed at several previous TKO events but has so far been unable to make it up onto the podium and will be looking to change that for 2016.
Look for more top riders to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
Colton Haaker has the skills necessary to compete for the win at the TKO but has struggled to deliver in the past. Hopefully he can turn that around in 2016.
