Sebastian Kienle has always be renowned as one of the best cyclists in the sport, which was confirmed once again thanks to his incredible ride at this weekend's Cannes International Triathlon. After trailing by about three minutes after the swim, the German blasted away from the field on the mountainous ride, finishing the bike almost seven minutes faster than eventual runner up Leo Bergere. Kienle's 52:53 run split was amongst the fastest of the day, proving he is gearing up for another big season. Last year's winner, Etienne Diemunsch, finished behind Bergere to round out the podium.

In the women's race Emma Bilham also used a dominating bike split to ride her way through the field - her 2:55 bike split was almost nine minutes faster than Michelle Vesterby (eventually fourth) went on the tough course and almost eight minutes faster than Tine Holst (fifth) needed to complete the second leg. Charlotte Morel and Johanna Daumas Carrier were able to utilize strong swims and fast runs to round out the podium.
