This week's video comes to us from Imperial College Boat Club's preseason cycling camp in France, and while it may be short on rowing, there's no shortage of tough climbs, mileage (kilometerage?), and banter in this one. In fact, over the course of the camp, the ICBC lads covered some 813km, and climbed over 16,000m, over the 11 stages of the trip. Thanks to ICBC athlete Josh Butler for putting together this montage—arguably the best way to get your training in order in a hurry.
Earlier this week, we asked via Twitter if your team was getting back on the water and taking their #firststrokes of the 2014-2015 campaign.

Tag a photo with #firststrokes on Twitter and we'll share it via our account as the new season gets going in earnest!
Also coming up this week: The fourth-annual RoRy Awards! Can you believe it's that time of year again? Check back throughout the week to see who'll take home the most prestigious awards in rowing at the junior, collegiate, and elite levels. (And, just to whet your appetite, here's a look back at our previous RoRy winners.)
