Colin, don't you realise it's not very friendly to climb above the challenge admin? :wink: At least you've given me a target for my attempt next week. :fswink:

Agreed, none of us want to see Abi with no one to compete against. I believe the metric for male to female performance comparison is wider in indoor rowing than most sports, because of its high reliance on raw power and lack of balancing mechanics. I think I saw 15-20% quoted as the performance adjustment - maybe Alan can engineer an extra column on the spreadsheet. (a more scientific method and in keeping with the age adjustment would be to work from male to female like-for-like world records).

But I definitely think you deserve an honourable foot-in-mouth award for the 'not too young' comment, mikkel!

Hey, we never do mention a Lady's age. I believe I was very careful as I chose my words. She claims to be 46, but that doesn't necessarily means that it is so. :wink: [-X :lol: :lol: :lol: I don't think this is a "foot-in-mouth award" worthy :!: :?: On the contrary. 8)

I'll take a look into it. I certainly wouldn't want to discourage our ladies from taking part in these challenges.

With regards to a gender adjustment, I read the following thread and it makes me wonder if it is necessary, or if a gender adjustment is already kinda incorporated into the weight adjustment:
