Lee Valley VeloPark to host British finals
The British Rowing Indoor Championships (BRIC) are set to be held at east London’s Lee Valley VeloPark on December 12.
And competitors of all levels, from novices to Olympians, can pit themselves against the clock and each other in a range of races that are a test of strength, speed and determination.
The closing date for entries is Monday, November 30 and London 2012 Olympic champion Katherine Grainger, who competed at the last Indoor Championships, said: “I was really excited to hear that BRIC is returning, and particularly to the London 2012 Velodrome.
“It was fantastic to have the chance to compete there last time and to do so among so many young aspiring rowers.”
The Lee Valley VeloPark will be transformed for one day of fast and furious indoor rowing action, set to a backdrop of big beats and bright lights.
As well as the 2km races, a new 500m sprint has been added to the line-up to crank up the pace of the action.
The exhilarating 2km relay races are also making a welcome return after an inspiring display of power and tactics at the last Indoor Championships – a sight best witnessed live.
David Collins, a gym rower who participated in the 2km races at the last Indoor Championships, added: “It’s a very positive environment. You just don’t imagine that you are ever going to be competing in a place like that.
“Everyone was watching each other’s races and cheering each other on – enjoy it and soak up the atmosphere.”
SAS, the leader in analytics and business intelligence is proud to be the event partner of BRIC 2015 and the official analytics partner of British Rowing.
Spectator tickets from as little as £6 are also available at indoorchamps.britishrowing.org/spectators.
Children aged 16 and under gain free entry and the crowd can expect to experience “oar-some” racing and an electric atmosphere at an inspiring Olympic venue.
