Phil and Ed worked continuously to make sure all the athletes had a suitably challenging and rewarding camp. As a beginner in triathlon, they made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. My partner joined me mainly for cycling and had a great ride with Phil, who gave her confidence to go further than she thought she could. I have been to Lanzarote and I can honestly say I preferred this camp; short flight from the UK, top class rooms, beautiful rides and excellent weather! I will be back for sure.
