After a four-month wait and some behind-the-scenes turmoil , the second race of the inaugural National Cycling League series is finally here. Cycling’s freshest series will continue in Denver, Colorado, where 10 co-ed teams will be taking on a fast and furious 1.4-mile lap around the Dicks Sporting Goods Stadium. With eight corners, a long start and finishing straight, 60 point-scoring laps to conquer, it will surely be a n aggressive, action-packed race.
The first race of the NCL Cup took place amid much fan-fare on April 8, at Miami Beach. The Denver Disruptors took an emphatic win scoring 138 points between the men’s and women’s squads. The Miami Nights, the other NCL team -founded team, took second with 93 points, and the Goldman Sachs ETF/Texas Roadhouse team took home third with 29 points.
There was a big points discrepancy between the top two teams and the rest of the field; none of the other teams cracked 30 points, with several of the bottom teams scoring less than 10 points. While the NCL teams had run practice races at training camps earlier in the season, the race’s unique format took some adjusting to for the other teams. Now that all teams have had a chance to experience and practice the points-style racing, we hope to see a bit more competition from the non-NCL teams. NCL Cup Race #2: Denver
