Arthur Serrieres (FRA) secured the victory with a strong running performance in front of the German Jens Roth, who was leading up to T2 and showed an outstanding performance on this day. It was to be expected that he would lead after the swim, because Jens is one of the best swimmers of the PRO field. But that he still leads after the technically and conditionally demanding MTB course – that was a big surprise. However, the advantage was not enough to keep the Frenchman Serrieres at a distance, who was third in T2. But the advantage was enough to leave the Czech Lukas Kocar in 2nd place after the MTB course behind and to relegate him to 3rd place.
For the women the usual scenario: A moderately swimming Helena Karaskova rolls up the top field on the MTB from behind. Allen, Poor and Walters are cashed in one after the other, so that she reaches T2 just behind the Swiss Loanne Duvosin and then beats her narrowly on the second lap.
Ladina Buss (SUI) showed one of her best races this season and was rewarded with 3rd place.
Arthur Serrieres (FRA) and Helena Karaskova (CZE) lead in the Tour classification.
