2010 Adaptive World Championship Trials

August 19-21

Classification


To compete in the Adaptive Trials, each rower must have a FISA sport classification. If you have not been classified, you will not be allowed to race. Please contact Sandy at sandyot.rowing@comcast.net  if you need assistance with this process.


Time Trials

USRowing will be moving from 2,000 meters to 1,900 meters for Time Trials in NSRs, Speed Orders and Trials. This will be done to align the distance with FISA standards that may be applied in upcoming World Cups, World Championships and subsequent Olympic Games. Time trials will use one or two lanes, dependent on the number of entries, with a 40-second gap between each crew in that lane. If anyone has questions about the new distance or format please contact Matt Imes, High Performance Director, at matt@usrowing.org.
