PMs stay in your outbox until the recipient opens them (which is asynchronous to when you send them).

Seems like the Canadian Olympic team is moving to Ireland.

Fancy having the great Paul Buchanan as a lurker here - nice to hear from you Paul. Hope the family is well and your back holding up.

Not at all, this is NEXT best ctc effort ever. Nice to see what the very best can do.

Ps Yesterday during the cycling WM Hamish Bond did the time trial. Which showed that being great at one thing does not translate directly to an other sport. Maybe on a flatter course he can do better, his weight is not a plus uphill.

He would have placed higher if it weren't for a puncture. He was in 16th place at the first split then suddenly dropped to 44th on split2. After that he started to climb on the list again, but he probably knew the race was over and motivation/focus maybe not 100% anymore.
You can see his splits here: https://d2o9doy8pqmlel.cloudfront.net/1 ... esults.PDF
But he was, as you say, probably too heavy for the track in Bergen.

Ok, thats a good bit different, missed that, hardly saw him during the coverage. His rowing weight was around around 87, even a guy like Tony Martin is 75. Dumoulin and Froome are a good bit less. Both by the way, really focussed on dropping weight to become at the level they are now.

Placing say not that much, only 2 riders per country, so apart from the top riders a very thin field. The later rain also messed up things a bit.

Tony Martin: You go where you look.
Tom Dumoulin: Don't give him two months to prepare!
Roglic: Best conversion since Saul on the road to Damascus.
Froomey: JRA
The Field: Need practise with the cyclocross remount!
Bond: Lost among the third world privateers.

Congratulations to PaddyPower for winning last month's challenge albeit in a somewhat controversial manner. Sub7, with thirteen boats, were best represented on the water. For the first time this year, there's been a change at the head of the leaderboard with FM taking the top spot.
RC Mantova, as a new club with many consecutive entries, has claimed the January challenge. Train, Isenhurst & Cornish Gig also qualify for a challenge but must contact me for this to happen.
Red Line Rowers have the November spot, FIRT in December and RC Mantova will start 2018 with the January challenge.

It's a bug in Daren's software. It allows entries for challenges that have the challenge_open flag set to 'N'.

"Each rep from a stopped flywheel"

How do you get the flywheel to fully stop in 2' and 1' rest periods?
Mark Underwood. Rower first, cyclist too.

You can't. Just as all races at venues do not start from fully stopped flywheels. I interpret this as 'Do not row between intervals'.

I'm not going there. It's done and dusted. You're a fb user. Join the C2CTC group there for the blow by blow action.

We're all friends again!
