At YT, Friday the 13th is not a bad day. On the contrary, here’s some exciting news: American Neko Mulally joins Aaron Gwin and Angel Suarez as the third YT Mob team rider, to take on the UCI Downhill World Cup.
After two years on Gstaad-SCOTT, the 23-year old Neko “Gnarly“ Mulally from North Carolina has decided to take on a new challenge: In 2017 he will ride for the YT Mob, the same team that took Aaron Gwin to the overall 2016 World Cup title during its debut season on the racing circuit.
Neko, who took part in his first race at the tender age of six, knows Aaron Gwin and team manager Martin Whitely since before–they were all part of the same team in 2011/2012. “It worked pretty well at the time, and we’ve stayed in touch since then, spending time together at the races.” says Mulally. “My current contract came to an end in 2016, and it turned out that there was a spot open on the YT Mob. I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity, and I think I’ll be able to do some damage with these guys.” At YT, Neko will feel right at home–Good Times and Gravity take pride of place in Forchheim.
