Welcome to the newsletter

Well, there is absolutely no doubt in our minds that the weekend saw the largest, busiest and most successful TCR Show (www.tcrshow.com) ever at Sandown Park, Esher. The Tri247 team really enjoyed meeting so many of you at our stand - and in many cases being able to hand over some pretty significant prizes via the goodie bag draw. Huge thanks to all of our sponsors, for being so generous with their donations to this.

The decision to host all of the exhibitors on one level, avoiding the lower basement that was often overlooked by visitors was a smart one, and there was certainly plenty to see and do. Many of the seminars were packed, and with the like of Chrissie Wellington and Dave Scott present, that is hardly surprising.

As always, the Tri247 video lounge was in operation, and as well as interviewing both Chrissie and Dave (your Editor could quite happily have talked for several hours to Dave!), we also had the likes of Andreas Raelert, Eneko Llanos, Olly Freeman, Sophie Coleman, Jonny Brownlee, Richard Stannard, Sam Gardner, Jonathan Hotchkiss and plenty to more in front of the camera over the weekend, and we will be bringing you those over the coming weeks. Personal thanks to Simon Ward (www.TheTriathlonCoach.com) and Annie Emmerson from your Editor, for spreading the load of the interviewing duties!

Thanks also to 220 Triathlon Magazine (www.220triathlon.com) and Taut (www.taut-sport.com) for hosting and sponsoring the annual industry recognised 220 Triathlon Awards. Another excellent dinner on Saturday night, with most winners as honoured to be presented with their awards by Ironman legend Dave Scott, as they were to receive the actual awards.

On that note, a massive thank you to all of the Tri247 readers who took the time to vote for us during the voting stages. The whole team is truly honoured to have been awarded the Triathlon Website of the Year award for the third consecutive year. We work hard every day to try and bring you the latest news, results and features to keep you all in touch with the happenings in the world of triathlon, and your support means so much to us.
