Introducing The National
Pro Cyclists Are The Sports
Stars Of The Future
50+ million cyclists in the U.S., 2 billion cyclists worldwide, with no professional league of their own until now. Welcome to the NCL
"I saw an opportunity to reinvent the sport I love; to bring the passion and excitement of cycling to the next generation of fans. I wanted to reduce the knowledge barrier of becoming a fan by adding a scoreboard and creating a league structure that mimics most other professional sports. I also wanted to reduce the time investment by making it shorter, faster, and more action-packed. And that is how the NCL was born."
——— Paris Wallace, Co-Founder and CEO
