The American Dream, a video series that follows three good friends Neko Mulally, Dakotah Norton, and Max Morgan through their downtime, training, and antics at home as they prepare for the 2019 World Cup Season.

Neko, Max, and Dakotah all live and train together in North Carolina and Tennessee making this a natural fit for us at Newground Hard Dutch Latte, a local NC company, we support the boys and work on a bunch of fun media projects together throughout the year. Follow the guys through their adventures outside of the circuit in this series produced by Jack Berg.

In Episode Three, the boys head to US National Champs in Winter Park, Colorado, where they all go head-to-head for the iconic ‘US Sleeve’ on their jersey. With Neko being the defending downhill champion the pressure was on, that didn’t affect the joking around all week though!

bigquotesWinning the National championships is all about pride. There's races during in the year with big prize money and big bonuses, but this one is about being the best from your country and representing the nation with the sleeve on your arm whilst your racing abroad for the whole season. I’m really proud to win it and it means a lot to me!Neko Mulally

 As a Winter Park/Trestle local it was great to see these guys here and see them crush our local bike park trails. Now i have a good idea of how fast one can really go down Trestle DH trail!!

 @adrennan: dude same. I was helping a friend spot some lines and Brian Lopes and a few others came through one of the pretty gnarly waterfall sections. Changed the whole way I look at Trestle DH.

 THESE BOYS RIP AT WINDROCK. its honestly no surprise how well they did out in CO. east coast trails and windrock are way more gnarly than steamboat, trestle, or angelfire. i have yet to ride keystone though

 Was just at Windrock and then Keystone on a summer bike roadtrip. Windrock blue = Keystone black. Windrock black = hardest Keystone double black. Windrock double black = ... no comparison.

Not knocking Keystone or CO riders - I LOVED both places, but Keystone is built for everyone, while Windrock is built for (by) Neko.

 @Lokirides: I would definitely agree with ya, i just havent been out to windrock in a few years. last time i was there it was pretty gnarly, makes other hills look like a walk in the PARK, pun intended
