Abstract

An analysis of two stand-up paddleboard ‘distance’ events was undertaken to investigate any change in their participation, racing behaviour and whether such events should be approached differently by practitioners. The completion time paddler-to-paddler gap was investigated as a means of assessing the performances in two flatwater distance events from 2013-2017. The level of participation at these events had not noticeably changed. An analysis indicated that both events did not significantly change in their completion time paddler-to-paddler range from year to year when looking at three sub groups (p>0.05) and did not differ significantly in behaviour when normalised against each other (p>0.05). Post-hoc tests then revealed that the paddler time gaps at an event held in 2015 were significantly different when compared to all of the other years it had taken place (p<0.05). The use of a performance intensity chart indicated that there was different finishing paddler-to-paddler gap behaviour between the two events. Ultimately, it is proposed that athletes and coaches should be aware that two events with the same generic classification of being designated a ‘distance event’ may warrant different training methodologies and tactical decision-making.
