10k, Concept2 and BIRC

Today’s session on rowpro:
Interesting news from Concept2 UK this week. It seems that the company we know of in the UK who sell C2 ergs and run competitions (occasionally…) have become a new organisation called “the rowing company”, at the same location in Nottingham, and Concept2 UK have become a subsidiary of C2 US at a different location. Quite how this will work in practice sales wise I don’t know, it sounds like a risky move to me. But it seems that “the rowing company” (http://therowingcompany.com/) will run the competitions, and there will be a British Indoor Rowing Championships again this year. Only it will be held in Cardiff on the same day as the Welsh IRC, so really it is just BIRC by name, unless it moves to some big new venue. Time will tell, but it is something to train for. 7th December 2013.
