Re: CRASH-Bs 2014 One Person's View

Bakes, Yikes, well done. I can't believe you're still at it. Good on ya. To bad you couldn't give some of your under pounds to those that could have used it. (ahem) Nice to see some familiar names, also still at it. Erging for me these days is minute on, minute off X 2 and a 500m piece to warm up fo...

Re: 2013 Denver Indoor Rowing Championships

Bakes, What a GREAT picture, Jean-Paul was one HUGE character. Quite an amazing man, a true champion in every sense of the word. Yes I do remember your close encounter with the cement post in Birmingham, and I still chuckle. The eyes are an on on going battle. Retina and cataracts are all fixed and ...

Re: 2013 Denver Indoor Rowing Championships

Bakes, Glad to know that you can still lay on the BS. The ONLY legend in our group is Jean-Paul. You'll do fine in the 65-69. And I have no plans on taking up rowing again, my days are taken up chasing watts on the bike and not rate and pace. I did have an interesting mishap on the erg last Friday. ...

Re: 9th NE2KC

Bob and Bakes, First Bob, Oh yeah the beat goes on, snow, cold, wind or not. Right now I'm in the base building phase, which usually includes a couple of hard days a week (10 to 12 minute LT intervals), some sprinting and lots of base/tempo inbetween. Lots of this done on the trainer or spinning, an...

Re: 9th NE2KC

well thanks guys but I have an agreement with my bike coach that I will only erg a limited amount as cross training. Yes more a lightweight now than ever, inching toward 150. I hadn't even thought of posting a score up on the rankings, we were just having a pissing match about how good we used to be...

Re: 9th NE2KC

EGP, I like it, it suits you. Thanks, lots of fine old faces there. Almost makes me want to get after it again, almost. I did throw down a 7:02 here at altitude last week on a bet with my training mate. Not bad considering 1000m at a time is the most I erg these days. Now the bike is another story, ...

Re: Ranger's training thread

Ah crap! I was alerted by a friend that The pathological one was lying about me again. I will return all the medals I have won rowing on the water immediately (masters natioals included) since I apparently have never rowed on the water. Who knew? Sure felt like I was rowing on the water but then the...

erging has lost a lion

Perhaps the wrong place for this but I thought here would get Nelson the notice he deserved. Nelson Boyd died this past weekend from cancer. I met Nelson the first time at the Mile High Sprints many, many years ago He did the hour row and then a couple of hours later sat on the erg next to mine and ...

Re: Ranger's training thread

Let me clarify one more of the lingering unchallenged lies that I have read here. In both 2009 and 2010 on a day at the gym with my cycling team when the weather was too crappy to ride outside my mates asked me to show them how to row and race the erg. Basically on a dare I did a 2k with no regular ...

Long time gone.

Been quite some time but thought I might sneak this in. While not quite the complete goal that Roy and I were working on (World Champion in two sports) we have both moved a bit closer. He won a National championship in Time trial and I just this weekend won one in the Team Pursuit (and set a new Nat...

Ranger you lying sack. A friend told me that once again you are throwing my name around like you actually know squat about me, my training or my accomplishments. One, I have never spoken to you other than the obligatory congrat and good race. Two, I set the WR at EIRC not WIRC in a race where I fini...

Bakes, Nicely done. Couldn't wait to get home from my ride and check the results. It was one of those "Hot Damn" moments when I saw your name in the top three. Great effort. Nice report as well. You truly captured the sense of what its like to be there. I missed the atmosphere and the BSing with old...

As per usual and according to expectations a great job at the premier race north of Boston. You da man. take care, be safe. live well, live stron...

Hmmm don't knowthat I can add a lot here. Yes the team performed quite well, but in the age categories that were represented the competion was more than just thin. And with no absolute confirmation from C2 a lot of my observatins are not rooted in absolutes. But they didn't even find 6 women that co...
