The Triathlon community is deeply saddened by the sudden death of Iain Dacre. Iain died suddenly from a heart attack early this morning at the age of 66.
Known as Bikeman to all of us, Iain was a founding member and an honorary member of the Association. He had contributed tremendously towards the development of Triathlon sport for over a decade during the early years of the Association. Bikeman also served as Team Manager to our youngsters on the National Squad in many overseas races those days.
Our thoughts and condolences are with his family, friends and colleagues.
