Red Bull Athlete Greg Callaghan Announces New Setup For 2024 Season

Greg Callaghan has elected to go independent for the 2024 season after Devinci, his former sponsor, dissolved their enduro program. Ironically, he is running the newly developed Ibis HD6, a product of another dissolved enduro program.

Take a look at Greg's announcement and build below.

"I’ve decided to run my own programme this year and I couldn’t be happier with how it’s all turned out. It’s been great having a blank canvas to work with, allowing me to focus on performance over everything else when putting this together. I think I’ve ended up with the best platform and structure possible for me to go racing with this season. Stoked!" - Callaghan via Instagram

With major companies reigning in or completely dissolving their enduro programs, I think we are going to see a lot more of this independent/highly supported privateer sort of approach in the next few years. 

I, for one, am all here for it. It is really cool to see what these top riders choose to run when they aren't contractually obligated to ride a certain frame. It is no secret that bikes today are all so good that it's like splitting hairs to determine which one is "better," but it is insightful to see what preferences the pros have regardless.

Additionally, I think we are poised to see better racing because riders will be able to tailor their setups completely to their preferences. Again, not that there is a quality deficit between the types of bikes people in the EDR run, but preference goes a long way in terms of comfortability and subsequently performance on the bike.
