“Chris Leiferman overcame a 2:31 deficit after a 19th–best swim in Boulder Reservoir with a race-best 1:56:01 bike split that gave him a 1:50 lead over Kennett Peterson and a 5:52 lead on eventual top contender Tyler Butterfield at T2, Slowtwitch reported.

“On his way to a 3rd-best 1:17:58 Half Marathon, Leiferman must have heard virtual footsteps from Butterfield as the Bermudian chopped 30 seconds per mile from Leiferman’s lead with a race-best 1:11:59 run split.”
