Editor of TRI247.com, John Levison, comments "we feel that the sport of duathlon has enormous potential, and
the opportunity to work with the leading brand in the sport to help develop that is an extremely exciting one.
Duathletes continually tell us how challenging and well run the Powerman Series of races around the world is,
and we are keen to help spread that message to a wider audience, to develop both Powerman events, and
the sport of duathlon generally."
Deputy Editor of TRI247 and former World number one duathlete, Annie Emmerson, comments "I raced several
Powerman races in my time as a full-time athlete and I can honestly say they were some of the best organised
duathlon races I ever did. The organisers take care of the athletes to ensure that they have the best race
possible - that includes the elite and age-group athletes. The courses are always challenging and all nondrafting
races, which mean you're guaranteed a tough, honest race. I support the Powerman organisation
100% and believe that it holds the key to the future of duathlon."
President of the International Powerman Association, John Raadschelders said "Tri247 caught my eye from
the first moment. Especially the way they communicate and create the emotion of our sport appealed to me.
Powerman has been looking for years to find the right partner. When I heard that Annie Emerson was the girl
behind Tri247, my decision was quickly made, because we both have the same goal: to be the best in the field."
