bigquotesThe path to becoming a sponsored rider isn't paved in gold. It often requires self-funding, traveling on a shoe-string, living in a van and a bucket load of determination. That's a privateer's way of life and for many professional racers, like Greg Callaghan, this is exactly where their careers started out.

It's been an action-packed summer for the Enduro World Series and racers headed to the French Alps, known to mountain bikers as the Field of Dreams for round 5 of the EWS 2019. There was less than a second in it between the stage winner Ed Masters and Richie Rude in France, further fuelling their head-to-head battle as they went into round 6 in Whistler, Canada.

Irish rider Greg Callaghan has journeyed from privateer to top contender of the Enduro World Series.

 The title of this video did not match the content. Talk about being a "privateer" and then show 90% footage of team riders. 1 star.

 Small mistake I wanted to point out: "European Football also has Anfield". But props for not saying Soccer and well done on an otherwise awesome vid.
