Track cycling’s draw is massive in Europe, so you never know what you’re going to get when a UCI event rolls into the US, much less, Los Angeles. This year’s UCI Track Cycling World Cup took place at the on the campus of California State University Dominguez Hills in their VELO Sports Center at the StubHub Center, drawing crowds that surprised. Eugene was there, in the pits so to speak, covering the events of the two-day World Cup. The most notable conquests that weekend were the United States’ own Chloe Dygert Individual Pursuit, the New Zealand team took home the event trophy, and French took home the 2016-2017 Tissot UCI Track Cycling World Cup title.

While track cycling in the United States has yet to reach “Six Days” status, seeing an event like this land in Los Angeles is a win / win.

As the pilot squeezed the throttle, our Embraer 195 headed east through light snow…

Neko Mulally’s Bad Luck 13

Neko snapped his chain, right out of the gate and still pulled off one of the best times of the day at the UCI Downhill WC, landing him in 4th place overall. All this kinda makes that bad luck 13 number suddenly seem quite lucky. I can’t stop watching this.

Thanks for sharing this video, Neil!
