International Competition in the Spring VIII Series Heats Up

Apr 16, 2020

The Spring VIII Series was created with rowing teams in mind: when on water racing seasons were cut short this year, athletes and coaches wanted to keep training and racing. Our team challenge allows athletes to compete as crews of eight from the comforts of home in a variety of workouts over five weeks.

Vying for the top of the men’s leaderboard, the “GARAGEATHLETE” Men’s A Boat includes the recognizable name of Hamish Bond, half of the famous “Kiwi Pair”.

The 2020 Spring VIII Series

We're hoping this challenge helps athletes to connect to their teams and coaches in an uncertain time.

While this challenge may not replace the thrill of on water racing, it does require similar teamwork to complete. So (virtually) grab teammates or club members and start a team! The series runs for five weeks starting April 6. Continue Reading ›
