by Newground  


"The American Dream", Follows Neko Mulally, Dakotah Norton, and Max Morgan through their downtime, training, and antics at home for the 2019 WC 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, to support the boys and work on a bunch of fun media projects together throughout the 2019 season. Follow the guys through their adventures outside the circuit in this series produced by Jack Berg.

Episode one recaps a trip down to Florida for some cross-training after the first World Cup. Watch as the boys head out to the beach for some "relaxation," hit up the local pump track, and are taught a lesson from the famed Millsaps Training Facility on how to go fast on a dirt bike.

bigquotesWe're extremely excited to be able to support these three as they lay it on the line this year. It's been amazing to personally watch the dedication, effort and calculated risk that goes into their sport, as well as the incredible combination of skill and commitment it takes to put it on the line and compete at the level all the guys on the world cup circuit have been pushing things to over the past few years. Also, no shame here, give our product a shot, it's dangerously good.Phil Rooney - Newground CEO

Our goal this year is to show a true, in depth view into what these athletes do when they aren't chasing the World Cup Downhill circuit. Keep an eye out for episode two where the boys head back to North Carolina for some training, trail riding, and local racing to get ready for Fort William!

 I love that these boys are doing this and enjoying themselves , and I know that moto is a huge parallel to DH.

That being said: I can’t imagine another sport where other athletes are cross training in high risk, somewhat unfamiliar activities during the season.

Imagine if Tom Brady was shredding the local half pipe leading up to the NFL playoffs. People would be going ballistic.
