YT Mob’s hunt for its next two junior racers has traveled around the world, from New Zealand to South America and Fort William, Scotland. Now, the World Tour lands in North America at the Wondrock Bike Park in Tennessee.
At Windrock, 22 riders from Canada, Brazil and the United States gather to learn what racecraft is, and why it is important.
Who better to learn this from than Neko Mulally? The American is part of the rising crop of American downhill racers leading the nations resurgence on the World Cup scene. Joined by YT Mob pro rider Angel Suarez, Mulally leads the fifth of six YT Mob World Tour camps.
“Racecraft… it’s like asking ‘what is a ghost?’ It is hard to define,” says YT Mob team owner Martin Whiteley. “It is the art of racing and understanding when to be measured, when to ride a percentage race, when to take risks and when not to. That is something you must take into consideration. At the end of the day Racecraft is the art about knowing what you need to do to get the most out of your run.”
