Triathlete Europe reports, “The two-lap swim did little to break up the women but a quick transition saw a tight-knit lead group of eight form at the front of the flat and very technical 40-kilometre bike course.

“The tough course caused some early casualty’s including Australian Natalie van Coevorden. The front group included Lucy Hall (GBR), Flora Duffy (BER), Jorgensen, Zaferes, True, Rebecca Clarke (NZL), Pamella Oliveira (BRA) and Jessica Learmonth (GBR).
