Crash B – Race opposition

Posted by thepeteplan on February 18, 2009

I am racing in the final heat of the 30-39 hwt “Masters” race at 1530 on Sunday (2030 UK time). There are only 8 people in the final heat, and here is how they stack up:

Erg – Name – Recent 2k time (from quick web search)
9 – Pete Marston – 6:17
10 – Kim Andre Eriksen – 6:14
11 – Neil McMullan – 6:04
12 – Joachim Ringer – 5:59
13 – Jens Raab – 6:05
14 – Geoffrey Hoffman – 6:14
15 – Gregory Le Sage – 6:09
16 – Shaun Hickson – 6:19

If anyone can fill in the three blanks that would be appreciated [edited to add them]. I am seeded either 7th or 8th in the heat, and I put down a predicted time of 6:15. Obviously it depends on predicted times, not these recent race times, but I assume Raab is quicker than Ringer, and so the bottom half are faster than the top half. If so that would put me slowest in the heat, which would be perfect, especially with small gaps between each person. So Raab perhaps 5:58, Hoffman perhaps 6:03, and Hickson perhaps 6:14?

    Hmm. Rowing ranking tends to be from the middle out, so you would be right in thinking that you’re ranked in the last two. However, it’s quite possible that Ringer is the favourite, with Raab putting in a better estimate than Mcmullan.

    Estimates aren’t always the best judge for ranking. When I race, my estimate tends to be slower than my final score. I have a feeling yours may be too. What the others put in we don’t know, but I reckon from their recent scores you have planty to play with.

    Heh heh heh.

    Don’t know if you’re still in the country… Good Luck for Sunday.
