Given the BTA Annual report gives figures on both the BBC Olympic and non-Olympic triathlon events carried this year, and for the non-Olympic events the average is typically 1.0M, 18% Share, 1.1M Peak. It would indeed be interesting to know what sort of viewing figures five get for the IM races they've been showing, if anyone sees anything, let me know.
