M4x Great racing coming up with the big men in quads.
Heat 1: Italy, USA, Estonia, Russia and France  

Russians lead from the start with Estonia alongside and French coming third.  Italians wind down and nearly stop 150 m from the line.

Heat 2: Croatia, Australia, Poland, New Zealand 

And they’re off – All four in a line with a canvas to Croatia at 500m.  Australia drops off the page and NZ aren’t quite up with the Poles in second.  Croatians make their 36 rating look easy – great acceleration in their power.  Last 500m and the Aussies pusb on and NZ sprint too trying not to get caught.  Croatia continue to lead – but the third place is where the race is.  Croatia and Poland one and two;  Australia third.

Heat 3: Germany, Switzerland, Great Britain, Ukraine 

Germany take a confident start and are half a length up on Ukraine at 500m gone with Great Britain  half a length behind.  The wind is resigning so the middle of the course looks a bit frisky.   It’s more a direct tail wind now.  Germany showing the rest how it should be one as they glide out to a two length lead.  Overhead camera shot is fabulous – parallels of the wave fronts with the oar parallels moving one the top.  Britain second and the Ukraine and Switzerland fighting for third.
