Neko Mulally started racing mountain bikes at age 13. Neko has had a very successful mountain biking career becoming a three-time national champion. At the 2014 UCI Mountain Bike World Championships, he finished fourth place despite breaking his chain out of the start hut, in one of the most impressive race runs in history. Neko loves giving back to his community in any way that he can. He has worked with several parks to build more trails and has even taken on an event organizer role for downhill, enduro, cross-country, and e-bike races. With his brother Logan, as his videographer, his goal remains the same of being one of the best guys on the hill throughout the World Cup circuit. He recently started his own team, Frameworks Racing and has created his own race bike from scratch.
