All good things must come to an end! Cannot thank everyone at the @cubeactionteam enough for all the memories, successes, struggles and friendships over the last 5 years. Especially to @wxm_sports who brought me into the team all those years ago. When we first met at Eurobike in 2014 who could have known what the future held, so proud of what we accomplished together during these years. Thanks to everyone at @cube.bikes, the team staff, team mates and all the partners of the team who helped me and shared the good times, I’ll see you all again at the races for a 🍺 and a chat. As for what’s next for me, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for that… 🤐 #excited #freshstart #thankyou #bikesareclass #cubeyourlife
“Greg Callaghan is leaving the CUBE Bikes ActionTeam at the end of 2019!” wrote Cube. “Thank you for amazing last years travelling & racing around the world, sharing with you lots of good moments on the podium and on track! We will miss the Irish touch in our team for sure.”
Enjoying all of his professional racing career so far with Cube, Greg’s success in the Enduro World Series is plentiful.
Numerous wins, including his back-to-back triumphs at the EWS in Ireland are now the stuff of EWS folklore.
He also claimed a career-best of third overall in the championship in 2017, along with multiple Irish Enduro titles.
“Greg’s career start some years ago when I brought him from a privateer to a Pro Rider – now he leaves the Team as one of the world’s best Enduro Rider!” wrote Cube Bikes ActionTeam manager Claus Wachsmann
“His spirit and professional action brought also the team to another level – and so we could share with him lots of podiums and outstanding moments! We wish him in his future career all the best and good luck … #paintthehillgreen will never be forgotten!”
Injuries and mechanicals put paid to a promising 2019 with 29th overall, but when all came together the speed was there to bang out top-six times.
We’re looking forward to seeing where the merry-go-round stops for Greg with spots opening up at Specialized, Pivot, Orbea and more.
Entered in Chile’s Santa Cruz Andes Pacifico on February 17-23, we’ll see him in action on his new steed soon enough.
Good luck Greg with what the future holds #Huptheparish
