It may be far from the roads of France but Dorothy Robinson would have felt at home in the yellow jersey after cycling her way to second in the world at the Road Worlds for Seniors.
Competing as part of Harbison's Slow Speed Demons, Dot cycled 1380.5km to finish second on the international women's leaderboard, whilst the Moss Vale group finished ninth overall in the team rankings.
Road Worlds for Seniors is an annual challenge event that uses virtual cycling technology from Motitech.
Dot, who is an amputee and uses the arm-powered bike, said it took a while for her achievement to sink in, unsurprisingly given she had just completed a long stretch of riding.
"It was awesome," she told the Southern Highland News.
"Right after I'd finished doing a 50km race he [staff member Zac] turns to me and says 'how do you feel' and I went 'I don't know!"
The achievement is made even more astounding by the fact Dot had never ridden a bike before and wasn't originally signed up to compete.
"I can ride the bike and I don't get tired," she explained
"I just use my hands and as far as riding a pushbike, I've never ridden one in my life. I'm like my father, he couldn't ride a pushbike and nor could I.
"But I feel like I could do it forever."
