Wade Young and Mario Roman Confirmed for 2018 Tennessee Knockout
Sherco factory riders are among the world’s best Extreme Enduro racers
Sequatchie, TN (August 2, 2018) – Sherco has confirmed that both Wade Young and Mario Roman will be competing at the 2018 Kenda Tennessee Knockout on August 19th. Both riders are past podium finishers at the TKO and will be a serious threat to take the win.
Young just won the 2018 Red Bull Romaniacs event, arguably one of the toughest Extreme Enduro events in the world. The South African, who is still just twenty-two years old, has previously won the Hells Gate Enduro in Italy and has won the tough multi-day Roof of Africa in his home country two times. Young finished second to Cody Webb at the 2016 TKO and will be gunning for the top step this time around.
Roman transitioned from traditional Enduro to Extreme Enduro racing a few years ago and already has a few major wins to his credit including Ales’Trem and Hells Gate. The Spanish rider made a last-minute decision to compete at the TKO last year and joined Cody Webb and Graham Jarvis on the podium with a third-place finish. He too will be back looking to apply what he learned last year to earn the win.
Look for more top riders to be confirmed in the coming weeks.
The Sunday racing uses a unique four round Knockout race format that is challenging for the riders and entertaining for the fans. The course layout provides a lot of great spectator locations with some unbelievably challenging terrain for all four Knockout rounds. Mark your calendar for the weekend of August 18-19 to see the world's best racers face off against the track and each other.
Wade Young just took the win at the 2018 Red Bull Romaniacs so he has momentum coming into the TKO.
Spain's Mario Roman made the podium at the 2017 TKO and like Young, he learned a lot about the terrain and format that should help in 2018.
