"Hessian" Indoor Rowing Championships 2017

Post by RdGkA » Tue Dec 12, 2017 1:30 pm

Hello!

I got my new Free Spirt Kit yesterday, just in time for the race in Frankfurt on Sunday.
It is only 1k, and I still have to get a proper target time, so I will have to do TT today. :roll:
Until now I got only one competitor but my frienemy has a habit of signing in late, so I won't know until Sunday.

regards

Good luck for your race Ralf, I hope the new FS kit will give you wings :fswink: As of now you have four competitors, no idea if your "frienemy" is amongst them:

There is a 2k race as well. Why did you pick the 1k? You could have twice the fun instead :twisted: :fswink:

Congratulations Ralf! Didn‘t I tell you that if the rehearsel goes wrong the show itself will be perfect? :D It must be very pleasing to finish a race with an SB!

So you won a medal (Silver) in the 500m as well? It looks like your frienemy Joachim Ring3r had no chance!

Thanks Peter!

I did not row a 500m, I just wanted to brag about that beast Ivan.
