Gabriel Cullaigh – After Spain and Movistar it’s Cornwall and Saint Piran


It’s been a wee while since last we spoke to Gabriel Cullaigh, four years, April 2018 to be exact – he’d just won two stages in the ‘pro team shop window,’ Volta ao Alentejo in Portugal then followed that up with a top 10 in the u23 Gent-Wevelgem.

That year he also won the UCI 1.2 Rutland Melton Cicle Classic and enjoyed a solid season.

Season 2019 saw him still with Team Wiggins and ride another strong Alentejo with two fourth places, a second and a stage win; in addition he rode a solid Tour de Yorkshire with two top eight placings against top opposition. 

These rides had caught the eye of Spanish World Tour team, Movistar and for season 2020 he pulled on that nice blue jersey with the big white ‘M.’

But it’s fair to say that his two years with the team didn’t go as well as he’d hoped and for 2022 he’s back in the UK with Cornish UCI Continental team, Saint Piran. 

We caught up with him again recently.
