We fell in love with the Vercors and surrounding region over 20 years ago when Roger signed to a local team in the nearby town of Romans-sur-Isere for the last 2 years of his 12 year International/GB cycling career. The club was also home to the Tour de France yellow Jersey holder and local boy, Charly Mottet. Although Roger is no longer with us his legacy lives on in his nephew Conor Dunne, who has signed his first pro contract with Aqua Blue Sport, Ireland's first UCI professional Continental cycling Team. Conor is a frequent visitor where he finds the terrain, tranquil roads and home comforts the perfect training base.
