Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro - who's going?

Aug, 16/17 - Trials Training Center

http://tennesseeknockoutenduro.com/

This event, with the exception of a very few people, will let you know just how much you suck at riding.

I promise there will be more than one jaw-dropping moment. These guys are incredible!

Going Saturday. Once I get my fill of spectating, I'm going riding and will miss Sunday (Pro day). Forecast for the weekend looks fabulous.
Will be the one on the Vstrom loaded for camping...

Hi guys: new to the forum. I'll be mountain biking Saturday at Raccoon Mountain in the am. May stop by mid-day - is there a lot of good spectating or is it a lot of waiting between heats?

Don't park on the East Brow at Raccoon. The car break-ins are bad there...

Two races on Saturday. The first at 10am, the next at 2pm. Central time. Each race has about 2 hours of constant action.

They have wave starts. Imagine it being like a triathlon wave start. They launch about 9 bikes at a time with just a couple minutes gap between them and the next wave. Each wave is designated by their assigned number series. That's how you can follow how well they are doing. i.e. If you see a 800 series number mixed in with a bunch of 200 series riders, you'll know that dude is fast and has basically passed everyone in his wave and caught several other waves.

So, there's really no waiting between heats or waves. Just the gap between the first and second race.

The course is spread out over a large area. Its not like an arena race. You can watch for 20 minutes in one area, then walk to another area, then go to another area. Just dress comfortable as you'll be walking a lot. Last year, conditions were wet. Spectators had to help some of the riders on a very difficult hill climb section. So, there's the possibility to get dirty... Again, I only attended amateur day last year. Different rules on Sunday. Can't touch the pro riders.
