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.
