Lysebotn roller ski race course

Hello Dominic

Norway's toughest roller ski race, Lysebotn Opp took place on 31st July.  The course rises 640m over the 7.5km [or 2,099 feet over 4.66 miles]. 
Maurice Magnificat [France] and Liz Stephen [USA] took just 28:12 and 32:53 minutes respectively to win it!
GB's Andrew Musgrave came in 32nd in 31.39 and Fiona Hughes 22nd in 38:52 - well done!
