Walker in Top 5 at TKO

For the renowned Tennessee Knockout, the Hard Enduro world descended on the Trials Training Center in Sequatchie, TN. The event is broken up into several rounds. After the Hot lap on Saturday afternoon, the top sixteen pro riders race in the Straight Rhythm prologue to entertain the fans. Jonny Walker just got beat out of 3rd place in that event. On Sunday the format was split into three rounds. A stint on the “long course”, then head-to-head races. The final round returns to the short course for a 35-minute plus one-lap race. After all the rounds Jonny Walker finished in fourth place. Beta riders Danny Lewis and Tim Apolle, who both are coming back from injury were able to finish in the top twenty even though their fitness level was back one hundred percent.

“What a race at TKO. I had an awesome time battling with the boys and came away with fourth place. Thanks to all the fans and I look forward to being back soon for Endurocross. Thank you Beta USA for supporting me and all my other sponsors.”

“What a weekend the TKO. It’s always a great time with the fans and the high intensity racing. I struggled with my endurance but I’m happy about being able to push through the pain until the end! Great to be back racing after a few months of not doing much at all!

Thanks Beta USA for all the help!”

Tim Apolle

Beta 300 RX

“It feels so good to finally get back on the track. The Red Bull Tennessee Knock Out was so exhausting but still a lot of fun. I got three solid runs. My Beta 300 RX ran very well. My knee is feeling better, but the 6-month break from injury is a clear indication of my fitness. I’m thinking positive and taking a lot from this weekend. I’m just happy to be back so quickly from a relatively major injury. Thank you to all my supporters, friends, and family!”
