Entries open for the 2017 British Rowing Indoor Championships
Now is your chance to get your entry in for BRIC 2017, which takes place in London on 9 December
The British Rowing Indoor Championship (BRIC), presented by Visit Sarasota County, returns to the iconic Olympic velodrome in London on Saturday, 9 December and entries are now open.
Under the vibrant lights, competitors at BRIC can race in 500m sprints, 2,000m tests and the fast and furious 4,000m team relay. Set to a backdrop of fresh beats and a roaring crowd, 120 Concept2 indoor rowing machines will be lined up and ready for action to make BRIC 2017 an indoor rowing event like no other at the Lee Valley VeloPark.
Last year, over 1,800 rowers took to the race floor, from first-time races to our rowing stars from Rio 2016, GB Olympic champions. DJs pumped out pulse raising beats across the race floor as competitors raced against each other and indoor rowing records were smashed. Don’t miss out on your chance to compete at this unique event. Whether you are racing to be crowned national champion, looking to set a personal best, or simply want one final fitness challenge for 2017, you can achieve your goals at this festival of indoor rowing.
Moe Sbihi, who broke Sir Matthew Pinsent’s long standing 2,000m record with an impressive time of 5:41.8 at BRIC in 2015, is encouraging people to sign-up to BRIC. “I have smashed personal bests and British records at the British Rowing Indoor Championships before and I love competing there,” he said. “There is something special about the atmosphere of the event, with everyone getting pumped up by the DJs and then being announced onto the race floor, it really gets you in the right state of mind to compete.”
Sbihi added: “One of the best things about BRIC for me is the fact that the GB Rowing Team get to race alongside the rowing stars of the future. Meeting young rowing fans is always motivational, it’s great to meet them and be able to cheer them on in their races.”
