There are just under two months to go, and questions swirl about who will contend for the massive $1 million payout in the inaugural four-city National Cycling League (NCL). Only two teams are so far confirmed to line up at the opening criterium in Miami Beach, Florida, April 8, with eight more teams to be announced for the unique, invitation-only series.
The list of teams who have declined invitations is on the rise, L39ION of Los Angeles confirming today they will pass on the newly-launched four-city dash for cash series.
"L39ION of Los Angeles will not be participating in the NCL, but we’re glad to see the investment in American cycling and share the desire to increase participation and grow our sport,” said Hunter Grove, team manager for L39ION of Los Angeles. “We look forward to sharing more shortly about our exciting plans for 2023 and beyond.”
L39ION of Los Angeles has been one of the most dominant US road racing squads the past two seasons with top results from both men’s and women’s squads. The team includes two-time women’s US Pro criterium national champion Kendall Ryan as well as former men’s crit champ Ty Magner and reigning US Pro men’s road race champion Kyle Murphy.
