Notes on C.R.A.S.H.-B.s From Coach Nick
The SBK Indoor Rowing Team put in a strong showing at CRASH-Bs, the world indoor rowing championship, this past weekend in Boston. The group, AKA the “CRASH-Beasts,” had trained for 17 weeks for the event, and had a lot to show for their efforts—they not only improved their scores on the 2000m piece, but also gained confidence on the erg. The program included three technique clinics, four races, and video analysis of the participants’ rowing form. What was really impressive is the fact that the training, which was sometimes brutal, was all DIY. The following CRASH-Beasts raced in Boston:

A few people had put in the bulk of the training but couldn’t make it to Boston in the end, including Sonya C., Alona K., Billy K., Pigeon K., Colette K., Melissa L., Pavel M., Laura M., Katie M., Andrew M., and James W.
Please congratulate the CRASH-Beasts on completing their training! (Congratulations may take the form of a sympathetic hand on the shoulder and a knowing, pitying look.)
