Neko Mulally (Audio Interview)
The 16 year old gravity rider from Reading in Pennsylvania has had an impressive year despite the fact that he’s not yet old enough to race World Cups; that will come next season.
Most notably, at Whistler this year during the Crankworx events, and racing Pro Men, Neko finish 4th in the Dual Slalom (behind world class talents Kyle Strait, Brian Lopes and Johannes Fischbach), and then in the Canadian Open Downhill finished 5th, just seconds behind World Cup stars Brendan Fairclough and Steve Smith.
Neko rode as the forerunner for the Canadian rounds of the UCI World Cup, and is now dead keen to hit the circuit next year in his first World Cup season. Currently a member of Specialized Team America, Neko is open to race for a new program in 2010.
We managed to pin Neko down and get a few choice words from this articulate 16 year old American…is he the new renaissance?
