Gabriel Cullaigh has had one whirlwind of a year. In this cycling podcast, we crack open the beers and talk to this professional cyclist about the struggles of getting signed, how Cullaigh came close to giving up his biking career and the rare breathing condition that masqueraded as asthma for years... 


“That’s why I got to the point earlier in this season thinking, is this worth it? Do I have what it takes?” - Gabriel Cullaigh


This week’s episode kicks off with a round-up of the news; you guessed it, Skinner’s bike is still missing, Helga gets a shout out and Cullaigh explains the unorthodox origins of his surname. 


Having recently signed for Team Movistar, Cullaigh discusses his uncertain journey towards getting signed, his time at Team Wiggins and life in the Academy.


Skinner and Hindes also ask and Cullaigh about the breathing issue he’s struggled with for years. What was first thought to be asthma, soon turned out to be something completely different. With surgery an option that didn’t guarantee results, find out what course Cullaigh took to be able to cycle at the highest level...
