Good to see Cat5, Button Mushroom & FB & Petal.
Cat5 makes a lot of sense. I actually hoped to buy a new pair of running shoes but no-one was selling what I wanted. Odd really. Did quite well on the freebies, about 27 quids worth.
Did seem quite swimming heavy, Zoggs, 2 endless pools, big swim shop, NOWCA. Also, lots of those tri training camps abroad, loads of nutritional supplements, loads more nutritional supplements, fizzios, more nutritional supplements and tons of sticky tasting yuk. Dassia bikes gets my vote as saviour of the day with some free chocolate chip shortbreads.
UK Tri (the Stratford people) seemed very keen on some pirate teaming up for their new best tri team in the country race up in Shropshire. I said they would need to lay on a burger van and some decent beer if they wanted pirate support, which they said they would be pleased to do! Details will be on the website.
Nice afternoon out but don't expect anything new or much in the way of stonking show deals like you used to get.
