He finished in 91st place in the 2014 Giro d'Italia. In 2015, McCarthy showed promise by reaping a third place in the overall classification of the Tour of Turkey thanks to good placings in the mountains.[5] He was named in the start list for the 2015 Vuelta a España[6] and the 2016 Giro d'Italia.[7] In October 2016 he was announced as a member of the Bora–Hansgrohe squad for 2017, with a focus on short stage races and punchy one day classics.[8] In June 2017, he was named in the startlist for the 2017 Tour de France.[9]
