TKO confirmed but withdrawn from WESS Enduro World Championship for 2020
While the Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro will go ahead on August 14-16 in accordance with the AMA‰Ûªs Safe To Race Toolkit, the event will now not be part of the WESS Enduro World Championship in 2020 but will return to the series in 2021.

The WESS Enduro World Championship, together with the TKO organisers, have decided to withdraw the event from the 2020 WESS Enduro World Championship calendar due to ongoing COVID-19 travel restrictions.

With the world slowly beginning to rebuild following the coronavirus pandemic, the current restrictions surrounding international travel to North America make it unviable for competitors and teams from outside of North America to adequately plan for the race.

Eagerly anticipating its debut visit to the United States, and TKO, in 2020, WESS Promotion GmbH wish race organisers all the best for 2020 and look forward to the event being an integral part of the 2021 WESS Enduro World Championship calendar.

Winfried Kerschhaggl - WESS Enduro World Championship Series Manager said, ‰ÛÏOf course it is disappointing that we are withdrawing the Kenda AMA Tennessee Knock Out Extreme Enduro from the 2020 calendar, but we firmly believe it is the right thing to do. As we all begin to rebuild life as COVID-19 restrictions ease, as a championship we still face many uncertainties surrounding international travel, and especially trans-Atlantic travel. TKO is fixed for 2021, this is simply a one-year postponement.

"The WESS Enduro World Championship will visit Tennessee next year. We know how much the US riders have been looking forward to participating in the series for the very first time at TKO, but at this time it is not practical to do so. We will watch on intently and wish Eric and his team all the best with this year‰Ûªs race.‰Û
