Gabriel Cullaigh – “2018 is all about winning bike races”


It was the end of 2016 when we last spoke to Gabriel Cullaigh, he’d just signed up with top Dutch development squad, SEG Racing.

We’d expected great things after a 2016 season which saw him on the podium of the u23 Gent-Wevelgem and fifth in the u23 European Road Race Championship but his season petered out mid-summer due to health problems.

But he’s back, with Team Wiggins and just days after he spoke to VeloVeritas he won Stage One and took the yellow jersey in the Volta ao Alentejo in Portugal.

But it got even better with Cullaigh also taking the final stage in Alentejo before going on to a top 10 finish in the U23 Gent-Wevelgem.

As this piece went to press he’d just taken fourth place on Stage One of the always hotly contested Triptyque des Monts et Chateaux in Belgium.

A man with his career firmly back on track, we’d say.
