“Hey 220 readers,” says Dave, “bring on your questions and concerns about health, fitness, training and racing. I’m eager to help you through 2017 and make sure you achieve your goals!”

Your Qs needed!

To get started though, we need YOUR questions for Dave… They don’t have to be about Ironman distance (although those are welcome!) and could relate to any aspect of triathlon. Simply send an email to and you could be getting some expert advice in a future issue!

Not only that, but Dave wants to hear your ideas for what his new coaching column should be called (and we’ll find a prize in the 220 gear cupboard for the winning idea!), plus the person that sends in the first question we use will also receive a personal answer from Dave in a video broadcast on Facebook Live.
