"WEC 2014. DONE!"
First of all, I would like to thank everybody who took part in the 2014 World Erg Challenge; we had a strong field and out of the 45 team mates who signed up 44 members contributed metres to the competition.

It has been a great competition and there have been some stand out ETT'ers who have erged the lion's share of the final totals (the final metres may change over the next few days due to time zone differences).
Over the past six WEC's we have been slowly moving up the rankings as the team has grown and we have also attracted crazy team mates who erg a lot!
As a team we have erged MORE metres than for ANY of the previous 16 challenges. Whaoooo!
Let's look at the ETT WEC 2014 individual contributions:
Well done to the dedication of ETT'ers on this challenge. The top players are:
- Our very own Dave H with his eye-wateringly-mental-metres of 1,680,000!! WOW
- Nick-'the-machine'-W who hit his own personal 1 million metres this challenge. Brilliant!
- Preston Z; 687k what a come-back to the team P! Loving your work ; )
- Steve C half a million in 30+ days. Impressive
- Jeff K lost some inches around his waist and erged 400k for the team! well done.
- Diggy battled through some illness but still erged 350k+
- Neil was very close behind Diggy with a fab 330k+
- Rob D is the highest ranking 67 year old on the team! 270k+
- Beat rowed way, way into the 200k+ club
- Paul M had a great WEC and erged past 200k
- Ric Y showed his constistent style and put in another great effort with 200k
- John B put the hours in and achieved a bold 200k
- Leslie precisely hit 200k to finish the WEC with flair!
We could not have achieved the final tally of over 9 million metres without the contribitions of the following ETT'ers:
- Mark B was so close to 200k with 190k+ - any more metres to upload Mark?
- Rainer, Lisa (our highest ranking female), John F and John G who are all regular dedicated ETT'er with 150k+
- Andy S, Espen, Caroline and Tim with 140k+. Nice work there
- Matt C, Matt B, Joe S, Edward and Pongi with 100k+
- Team mates who rowed between 90k - 50k are: Norman, Jonathan, Michael S, Tim W, Karyn, Jean and Bouke
- Ett'ers who contributed between 40k - 2k are: Mike B, Bill, Kevin, Wayne, David B, Lance, Mike S, Jim, Darren and Mark K.
Thanks to every single person in the team; EVERY metre counts and without your energy and hard-erging we would not have achieved our most ever metres for a team challenge.
Enjoy yourselves this Easter weekend. Have fun. Rest / don't rest. Eat, drink and be happy!
What are you planning to do now the WEC is over for another year?
Before I go; Nick W sent me this great photo rowing a marathon whilst watching the London Marathon on TV. Needless to say his wife was not very impressed with him taking over the living room ; )
