We fell in love with the Vercors and surrounding region over 20 years ago when Roger Dunne 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 at Velo Vercors and in his nephew Conor Dunne.
