Video: How Greg Callaghan's Family Helped Him Get to the Top of the EWS

Apr 27, 2021
by Cycles Devinci  

It’s hard to find a photo from Greg Callahan’s childhood without a bike or moto in it. The Irishman has been racing and riding bikes with his dad, Stanley, his entire life. To this day, even as Greg’s career as an EWS racer has him travelling for months at a time, the pair still get out to ride whenever they can, if only for the banter.

Rooted In Ireland is the story of a bond between father and son that was built on the muddy race tracks and trails of Ireland, where two generations of Callahan boys regularly take their place on the podium.

 I convinced my dad to buy himself an ebike last year. Best decision he ever made! It makes riding with him so much more fun!

 @Brendonl: Perfect use case for e-bikes! And folks with injuries that hamper steep climbing and restrict ride length.

 Love this! My dad, who got me into MTB, started riding again last year after a 25 year break. So great to ride with him again, though he's a bit slower than I remember from when I was 8! Also, I feel like a foundation in moto trials sets you up for success in literally any two wheeled sport. Trials people are nuts.

 a few years ago, on Cube bikes they did a spot light on him called 'against the odds' and it was like what? he was born and raised on a bike, was there any question ever that he'd make his career on a bike. this one is more like it.

 I love to see top riders taking this approach to riding. The difference between Greg and Gwinn (and nothing against Gwinn btw) is huge. I know I'd rather be the rider having fun.
