Last week was a tough and intense week. Less than 2 weeks ago, we were told that a week of testing, on and off the water, was going to be held in order to select a group of 6 scullers for our last winter camp in Sacramento. At the end of this camp, we will have a month left before our first race in Europe and we are going to get closer to our final line up in the quad that will race the qualification regatta in May. Obviously, this week of testing looked like a week of trials for the quad. On the menu, we had a 6k erg test on Monday, a 2k in single scull on Wednesday and a matrix in double scull on Thursday. No way to hide. It was a week at a 100%.

I wish you all a happy 2016 full of happiness and success. 2016 will be full of challenges and surprises. Of course it is an Olympic year and everyone has Rio in mind. But 2016 will be a qualification year at first. In 2008, I was excited to imagine my first Olympic Games. In 2012, I thought too much about the Olympic Games. And in 2016,...well, my imagination does not go further than May 25th and the Luzern Qualification Regatta. Do not ask me the exact dates of the Games. I have no idea. Nevertheless, it remains the main and ultimate goal.
