One of Ireland's fastest enduro racers, 23-year-old Greg Callaghan was the local favorite this weekend, and put on quite a show for the cheering fans as he pedaled his way to a win after seven tricky stages. An 8th place finish at the Scotland stop of the EWS last year showed that Callaghan has the pace to be a contender, and an 11th place finish at the first round in Rotorua likely gave him even more motivation to find the extra speed required to take that top spot.
Riding for the Cube Action Team, a 140mm Stereo outfitted with a 160mm FOX 36 will be Greg's bike of choice for this event. Like a number of other racers, he's chosen to go with a shorter travel option due to the rolling nature of the course, and will likely stick with the 140mm bike for the next stop in Scotland as well. On courses with rowdier terrain he'll be switching to a bike with 160 or even 180mm of travel depending on the nature of the track.
