Andreas Dreitz (GER) trailed out of the water by a couple of minutes, but by 35 km into the bike he had taken the lead from Sweden's Jesper Svensson and cruised into T2 with a 4:30 margin. That was more than enough to keep him clear through the finish line. Denmark's Mathias Lyngsø Petersen would finish second, followed by another Dane, Kristian Hindkjær.

Dreitz will now focus on Challenge Roth, his second full-distance race (he won his debut in Cervia last fall).

In the women's race Denmark's Pernille Thalund finished ahead of Laura Siddall (GBR). Camilla Pedersen (DEN) looked to be in control of the race after the swim, but lost her two-minute lead to Thalund on the bike and would eventually pull out due to stomach issues. Third went to another Dane,  Line Bonde.
