Neko Mulally is a successful American downhill racer who not only possesses world-class talent aboard the bike, he possesses a grit and a drive to do everything he can to the best of his ability. The Southeast local has turned the drive into a budding downhill scene. While looking for ways to train for the World Cups, he fell into and accepted opportunities to further develop the Windrock ORV park's MTB program while, at the same time, develop a regional DH race series. Instead of being another complainer or critic at a downhill race, Neko showed up to do work and gets his hands dirty. The fruits of his labor are beginning to blossom with race results and a growing DH community.
In this Off the Cuff, Neko discusses his 2017 World Cup race season with the YT Mob and digs deep about his passion for breathing new life into the American DH scene.
