Once started, in the swimming segment, which ran on a 1500 meter lap circuit, it was the Frenchman Vicent Luis who dominated practically the entire route together with Maik Petzold. However, in the last few meters, the Brownlee brothers climbed positions coming out of the water in the head.

The cycling segment, consisting of 6 laps, ran on a wet road that had a dangerous downward ramp, where the triathletes knew how to slow down in order to avoid massive falls.

As soon as we started, we could see again the Brownlee brothers leading the segment together with the Russian Alexander Bruahankow who tried to pull to take down a second group, Raña and Noya were 20 seconds away from them, but before the end of the first lap they were caught up , forming the first and large group where Noya is among the top 5 along with Brownlee, Brukhankov, Gemmell, Atkinson and Raña, among others, in a pack of 39 triathletes. The other Spaniard, Mario Mola, remained in the second group 40 seconds behind the head.

In the middle of the cycling segment, it was where Jan Fodeno, current champion of the 2008 Olympic Games, retired.

It was at this time where the brothers Brownlee and Noya, traced positions again to be in the top positions.

In a spectacular race where Alistair Brownlwee knew how to pull tactfully to get meters of difference as this last segment went by, he wanted to make it clear to us, before the end of the race, who would be the 2011 triathlon world champion. The little one of the Brownlees remained in second place followed by the Spanish, Javier Gómez Noya.
