Britcon has announced its commitment to sponsor Lincolnshire’s most successful triathlon race team for a second year.
The Britcon Triathlon Race team, which boasts the likes of top international triathlete’s Steve Clark (Middle Distance Triathlon European Champion winner 2015), Steve Grocock (World Iron Man Competitor), Jordan Skelly (3 time British age group winner), Amy Grocock (Great Britain Triathlon squad member) & Nick Martin (Keyo Brigg Sprint Triathlon 2016 winner) will continue to push for more world honours during the 2017 season.
This year team members will be taking part in some of the most gruelling Triathlon races on the planet such as the Triathlon X which is the world's toughest Ultra Distance Triathlon. In the tradition of the IronMan, NorseMan and CeltMan, Triathlon X tests the athletes to their limit.

Steve Clark said, “We are extremely pleased that Britcon has once again committed to continue its support to our team. With its backing we are now looking to take the team to the next level for the 2017 season and beyond. We have previously amassed a number of top accolades in a very short space of time and with the tremendous support we receive from Britcon we can only continue to go from strength to strength”.
