The Flying Pigs Roller Race was held Sunday at Bodywrx Fitness Center. The race consists of a two mile distance performed on a Kreitler roller system, a mechanism that allows a rider to be timed and remain stationary on a regular bicycle. It was orchestrated by the Twisted Spokes Cycling Team. 16 riders participated in the event, some attending from as far away as Waukon and Ames.
