Feb 27, 2014

Four SkiErgs in the Dry-Fire room in the Endurance Village at Sochi!

We’ve been following our Vermont local Olympians through their competitions in Sochi. Two athletes are members of the US Cross Country Ski Team, and two are members of the US Biathlon Team. The US biathletes brought a SkiErg along for the last few weeks leading up to Sochi and used it for specific strength workouts. When they got to Sochi, they were pleasantly surprised (as we were!) to find four SkiErgs in the dry-fire room! Continue Reading ›

Jan 28, 2014

A cold January day in Copenhagen was warmed up by some excellent racing at the 11th Concept2 Euro Open. The centrepiece of the day was undoubtedly the Men’s Open Lwt. Denmark has a proud lightweight tradition, and in this land of 75kg warriors, Henrik Stephansen is king. The current lightweight world record holder and lightweight single scull world champion, Henrik first burst onto the scene at the age of 19 when he set a new world record of 6:02.2 at the world indoor rowing championship.

Winter Oar Chores

Jan 17, 2014

It's hard to believe that the fall racing season is over and that most teams are gearing up for another exciting spring sprint season. College teams are getting together for preseason training, and those in the colder climates are most likely heading south to find rowable water and warmer temperatures. Winter camps for Masters are also popular as rowers of all ages, and abilities gear up for the coming season.

Regardless of whether or not you are a college team with several sets of sweep oars, or a single sculler with only one pair of blades, this is the time of year you can do some general maintenance on your oars to make sure they are in proper working order for spring. You will be ready for that first sunny gorgeous day of rowing! Continue Reading ›
