The test began with the 4 starts of the Short distance, which would be followed by the medium distance, and finally the queen test.
The day began with wind, and a cold thermal sensation, yet the water temperature indicated that neoprene was not allowed for short distance triathletes, and allowed for medium and long distance.
The initial wind decreased as the day progressed. The triathletes adapted to the circuit as the laps occurred in each of the segments, and the weather gave a respite. Gandia was shown in full sun with a spectacular blue sky at the foot of the Paseo Marítimo.
The first goals would come with the short distance triathletes with the Albacete INGETEAM Triathlon Club as the absolute leader, reaching the first 2 positions, thanks to the triathletes Manuel García and Francisco Javier Pelegrín.
Third position would go to Roberto Alcaide of Tri Infinitry Móstoles. The winner stopped the clock at 1:53:00. The women's podium would be for Celia Jurado of the Marlins Triathlon Madrid; Teresa Ribes from Triatló Corriol, and Hanna Tamoudi from CT Arena Alicante.
In Half distance the predictions were fulfilled, and Ander Noain from Peñota Dental Alusigma, reached the finish line in first position with 3:43:33, followed by Ramón Ejeda, recent Autonomous Champion of MD, with 3:48:07, from Tricanet from Berenguer, and in third position the UA Triathlon triathlete, Kerman Alonso, from the same category as Ander Noain.
