Recently, the 2012 Red Bull Foxhunt Champion Greg Callaghan dropped into the JOE offices for a quick chat about everything from hectic starts to taking on the downhill World Cup Champion, Gee Atherton.

The Red Bull Foxhunt takes place between the 4th and the 6th of October in Kilbroney Park, Rostrevor, Co. Down and it will see 400 local mountain bike enthusiasts gearing up to take on the mass-start endurance event.

All 400 riders will be pursued by the ‘fox’ aka 2010 downhill World Cup Champion Gee Atherton and he’ll be looking to take the title back from last year’s winner, Greg Callaghan.

Greg recently had a brief chat with JOE about what to expect at the event, his advice for anyone taking part this year along with some other interesting insights to mountain biking.

You can keep up to date with everything Greg gets up to over the season via his website GregCallaghan.com.
