Much lol. My pm did not register at start so I began about 1 minute after first group. Was overtaken after 10 mins by fast guys. Then 20 minutes of full gas with Brookes(thanks) before I felt rain on my back and slid off rollers. The tubeless tyre punctured and sprayed me and roller with sealant creating real life skid hazard. That was a sign to give up. Very silly.

Couldn’t make it tonight but did manage 30 mins through rural France courtesy of the Tacx videos.

Alan do you want the use of a proper turbo? I’ve a cyclops fluid (very good smooth feel, and quiet) not now needed for anything. Would stop you falling off! It’s yours for the duration if you wish.

This real life soap opera has become addictive in the past few weeks :)

Yes it is just getting stupid but a welcome distraction from one thing and another. I have crashed off rollers many times before but this was the first "weather-related" incident. 

Will also need to clean sealant from frame, seatpost and garage floor. Old puncture opened up. Wife has smart turbotrainer. I thought rollers would be minimal cool old skool but turbo may be less hassle

Yes they are the only model left in the world cos they are so expensive! My rear standard road tryre is disintegrating. I've  ordered trainer tyre instead to improve wear and grip. Saved £1170, which is nice.
