Unfortunately, 2013 will be remembered by Edinburgh Triathletes as one of sadness and tragedy with the deaths of active member and vice-president Andrew McMenigall, founder member Douglas Brown and long time supporter of Gullane Stephen Churcher. All were killed while cycling and the triathlon and cycling communities have been shocked by their deaths. (Photo: Jim McGoldrick)
