Greg Callaghan has grown from strength to strength over the last few years on the EWS. The once considered hometown lucky race winner has since gone on to place at the top of the results sheets around the globe, with a win in Madiera, a second in Tasmania, a fifth in Rotorua, and is currently in third for the 2017 season overall.
It shouldn't be a total surprise to see the Irish pinner added to the Red Bull athlete roster, given that he's shown he is deserving of the kind of support that comes with it.
Will the wings give him the edge, the extra confidence going into the final EWS of the season to pull another win in what has been his strongest season to date? We'll have to wait and see but his position in the top five makes it tight in either direction, with the possibility that he could take Dailly and even Hill (if something were to happen to him) to move up a slot or two, while Clementz is nipping at his heels. Melamed's recent injury
means he will no longer be a threat to Callaghan's current position.
