The men

French Anthony Costes and Brit David Bartlett were first out of the water in just over 30 minutes, but on the challenging bike course they were soon eclipsed by the strongest cyclists. Arnaud Guilloux who had a solid 31:47 opening swim moved past the swim leaders and Cunnama to put himself into a good position, but it was Belgian Sven Van Luyck who started his day with a relatively slow 37:20 swim and then recorded a race best 3:44:26 bike split. French Colin Arros also had a great day on the bike with a 3:49:03 effort and now it all came down to the run.

Guilloux had the best paced day and ran a 1:27:41 to the title of this unique event. Cunnama charged hard with a 1:25:32 to grab second place, but it was American Scott DeFillipis who ran a race best 1:16:47 to grab 3rd place, only 23 seconds behind Cunnama.
