MAGALIA, Calif. -- Chelsea Agost got started in roller derby with the NorCal Roller Girls nine years ago and earned the name Vicious V.

“I initially wanted it to stand for something else, but I am not going to say what the V was short for, but it’s what I started with and kept since 2011,” said Agost.

Last week, Vicious V participated in Skate the Bay. She completed a 155 mile virtual marathon in Chico due to COVID-19 concerns.

“It was hard to do, but it was a goal to look forward to because during quarantine, we didn’t have a lot to do, so chipping away at that goal felt really good,” said Agost.

The course took her nearly three months to complete which is a huge accomplishment considering she shattered her leg a year ago.

“I thought I was never going to skate again because when you get hurt, there’s fear. It was a really hard thing to go through, so coming back from that and doing this was a huge thing for me, said Agost.

Vicious V has some vicious scarring as well as a titanium rod in her leg from the injury. But she says, that wasn’t the hardest part of the marathon.

“When the fires happened, it was like some kind of trauma response. Smelling smoke. Ash falling,” Agost recalled.

V and her entire family lost their home to the Camp Fire and just moved back to Magalia.

“That was really hard on an emotional level to push through it and even want to come back outside when you’re dealing with that,” said Agost.

Agost hopes to Skate the Island next in Hawaii.
