Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

"I must keep any eye out for virtual competitions though, were do you see them posted ?"

Get on British Rowing mail list is one way and keep your eye on this forum's competition thread is another. The only other virtual competition I know in the pipeline is the World Championships in Feb 2021

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Don't expect he'll see it on here, but a shout out for Warren M in his 50+ A final today. Was second for a long time, but was passed with 400 to go and looked beaten to third but then came back over the last 100 to pip for second by 0.1 sec. After being in a dead heat for second yesterday in the he...

Re: British Rowing Virtual Champs

Richard Cheeseman's 6:41 was very nice (was at 1:35s at the end) but the 65+ plus guys were actually faster that the rest of the 60+ in a very close race. George Perrin won in 6:59 which is pretty good at 68y. Thanks Lindsay for giving me another few seconds :D but I only did 6:45.3 :lol: Full scor...

Re: WRIC goes Virtual

To add to the previous couple of posts: FISA and C2 between them also need to come to some understanding regarding possible world records. At the moment, "All static indoor rower 2000 meter record-breaking times must be rowed at a Concept2 sanctioned indoor rowing event with witnesses present." My ...

Re: British Rowing Virtual Champs

FWIW The nameless one was in my login group as the 60-64s and 65-69s raced together. Thought after login he was warming up as there was 'like' a spinning wheel against his name (similar to rowpro) but I guess it wasn't the same. No surprise he did'nt race, turned up at BRIC once, saw him warm up and...

Re: Sub 7 Indoor Rowing Club (UK)

Thought I'd pop in just to show I'm still alive. :lol: Motivation pretty low through the summer but managed to do something most days, finally managed in the last two weeks to keep with some sort of structured training so we'll see how it goes. :roll:
