Ireland’s Greg Callaghan has signed with Unior Devinci Factory Racing to contest the 2020 Enduro World Series.
After making us wait for the news, it’s now confirmed that Greg will join New Zealand’s Keegan Wright under the Unior Devinci awning this year.
Greg will race the Devinci Spartan 29 – with Keegan securing an EWS race win for the Canadian manufacturer in 2019, they are well-proven on the world stage.
Having creatively kept the new deal under wraps for the best part of a month, following his departure from Cube, Greg was pleased to finally let the cat out of the bag.
“I think this new environment at Unior/Devinci is really going to help me,” says Greg.
“I feel like I’m going to be happier at the races and feel like I’m in a better position to perform my best on the day. At the end of the day, a happy rider is a fast rider.”
After two lean years on the world stage, the Dubliner is hungry to get back to his best of 2017 and battle to add more silverware to his trophy cabinet.
“Ever since 2017 I’ve believed that’s where I can be. I’ve shown in stage results that I still have that speed, it’s just been putting it all together that has been the problem.
“I feel like having a new bike and new people around me will make it easier to put those race weekends together and put them into the results I’m capable of.”
Greg’s first serious competitive outing with Unior Devinci will be at the five-day Andes Pacifico in Chile on February 17-23.
The opening round of the 2020 Enduro World Series begins in Colombia on March 28/29.
Irish stockists for Devinci are Biking Dirty.
Freewheelin’ wish Greg all the best for 2020 and beyond and can’t wait to see him tear it up on the world stage. Hup the parish!
