Neko Mulally joins the YT Mob

The chainless wonders join forces again

Neko Mulally won’t be calling Friday the 13th unlucky anymore as he’s just bagged himself a slot on the YT Mob.

Neko joins Aaron Gwin and Angel Suarez on the team that made a stunning debut on the World Cup circuit last year when Gwin took the men’s title.

Neko first announced himself on the World Cup scene with a second place finish at the 2010 Junior World Championships. He went on to stun the world with a chainless, fourth place run at the Hafjell World Championships just two years later. His best World Cup result to date is a third, which he grabbed in Cairns despite a crash.

Unfortunately injury plagued the 23-year-old’s time on Scott and he couldn’t quite match his form from the Trek World Racing days. He only broke in to the top 20 once on Caludio’s team – at Lenzerheide in 2015. Hopefully his luck will turn around on his new team

Neko Mulally said today: “The opportunity to ride for the YT Mob comes at an important junction in my career. On top of the excellent support, I’m thrilled to be surrounded by this group of people at the races. To ride alongside a teammate like Aaron in an environment that’s committed to success puts me in an ideal situation going forward.”

Aaron says: “We believe in Neko as he believes in himself and we’ll work hard as a team to give him everything he needs to accomplish his goals of getting back to the top. It’s going to be a fun year; the chainless destroyers are back together, watch out world!”

Gwin and Mulally have been team mates under Martin Whitely before – at TWR in 2011 and 2012. He will no doubt hope the partnership will be as successful as last time. Whitely said: “Team chemistry is very important for us and this decision wasn’t taken lightly. Neko will be an excellent addition to the team.”
