Extreme off-road tests a riders’ skill and their machines’ capabilities over the most challenging terrain each venue has to offer, including agonizing hill climbs, endless rock fields and log crossings. The format is wide open for host organizations to include as many challenges at riders as possible. Extreme off-road can feature Le Mans starts, timed sections, GPS navigation, course changes and more.

Grand Championships

One of the toughest and most prestigious extreme off-road events in the nation serves as the AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

Kenda AMA Tennessee Knockout Extreme Enduro

The event features a multi-round “knockout” format. Riders race against the clock in some rounds and compete head-to-head in others. The course varies in length in each round and covers extremely difficult terrain. The TKO includes two amateur class competitions on Saturday, with the top 25 finishers earning the opportunity to compete in the pro class races on Sunday. Learn more at tennesseeknockoutenduro.com.

Featured Series

Beginning in 2020, two AMA Extreme Off-Road Featured Series brings extreme off-road competition to venues across the nation and gives riders opportunities to qualify for the AMA Extreme Off-Road Grand Championship.

Riders can secure starting spots in the Saturday afternoon TKO 2 race based on their participation at any of the qualifying events. The top 10 finishers in each event move directly to the TKO 2 competition.

Additionally, the top three riders from each qualifying series—who are not on the “invited riders” list—skip Saturday’s TKO 1 and TKO 2 competitions and compete against the world’s best extreme off-road riders in the Sunday pro races.
