Greg Callaghan - Making it Happen
Words Chris Hall // Photos Mathieu Valbuena




The best things in life don’t come easy, and while it can sometimes seem like people have had pro deals thrown at them, there is often a back story of hard work and dedication needed to get there. Greg Callaghan is certainly someone who put in the effort, and made the sacrifices necessary to get to where he is today, a pro rider at the top of his sport.

 These are awesome! It's so cool to be able to sit down with the guys for a bit longer than the 30sec post-race interviews and promo videos, even if virtually.

 Great podcast! Just discovered it recently. I just bought two t-shirts to support you.

I really appreciate that you looked for environmental friendly (as far as this is possible), good quality shirts. If it was just some cheap H&M shit where you can print your name on it I would not have ordered any.

I wish mountainbike clothing would take sustainability more into consideration but its rarely brought up when the brands are promoting their next season's fashion line.

 Hey, thanks so much, I'm really glad you like it. Also great to hear that you appreciate the work that went into sourcing the t-shirts. It means they aren't the cheapest, but that's not the most important thing.
