Hi all, our only team mate Edward who had entered the BIRC this year had to pull out of racing on Sunday due a number of unforseen circumstances - all related to house matters (boiler breaking, flooding etc)... Which is a shame but there is always next year!
To ease his conscience he rowed a pretty impressive 2k time last weekend as part of his training program with 7:32.9 which is only a couple of seconds off his BIRC 2012 PB last March! This places Edward in the top 10% of his age group on the C2 world rankings. If he had been there on Sunday it would have put him in 7th position in this year's line up.
