“It’s a first WTCS podium for exactly a year, but a first gold since Hamburg over two years ago, and the emotion was clear as he took the tape after runni9ng solo for the majority of a brave 10km run.

“Behind him, the Spanish duo Antonio Serrat Seoane and Roberto Sanchez Mantecon showed their run prowess once again, both scooping remarkable debut WTCS podiums. The pair had been in the chase bike pack for the duration of the 40km run and had considerable ground to make up out of T2, easing through the gears to pass the gutsy Jelle Geens and take silver and gold respectively.

“In the context of the World title chase, Geens held on for fourth, Britain’s Alex Yee in fifth with a late surge, not quite enough to put him above Hayden Wilde in the Maurice Lacroix Rankings with just the Championship Finals Abu Dhabi to come at the end of November to decide the 2022 World Triathlon Champion.”
