Yes, that's right, 'yet another' set of home made motion rollers...A few months ago when it was raining and I didn't get out for my morning cycle (I melt if I get wet), I popped down to the LBS and purchased a set rollers.

The course consisted of undulations and one major climb, (long and red hillish). Vanessa was with the lead bunch until the last time up the climb where she lost 20 metres to the three that broke away. This 20 metres turned into 1 min 34 sec at the end when Vanessa crossed for 6th place. She was happy with her result and the racing klms as she prepares for the Glenn Inness to Inverell race.
