The Mallorcan has achieved his third consecutive victory in the test and strengthens even more the world

Today one of the classics of the WTS circuit has been played, the test of Hamburg, where the best specialty triathletes met. Mario Mola current leader in the world, was the big favorite for the victory in the race, where he was looking for his third consecutive victory, after having achieved it in 2016 and 2017.

In the test reappeared Fernando Alarza and Vicente Hernandez, after his injuries with Uxío Abuín who returned to participate in a WTS.

The test that was played on distance sprint, began at 16: 40 in the afternoon with loas 750 meters of swimming, where the fastest in completing the distance was the Belgian Marten Van Riel followed by the group of favorites led by Vicent Luis and Richard Varga. Uxío Abuín left to 11 seconds, Mario Mola to 15, Vicente Hernández to 22 and Fernando Alarza to 23

In the fast six-lap cycle segment, a group of 12 units was formed, where there were Kristian Blummenfelt, Jonathan Brownlee or Vicent Luis, in this there was no Spanish. Since they were behind to 8 seconds.

The leading group was broken by an attack by Briton Jonathan Brownlee, to which Blummenfelt and Luis responded, from behind the uniformed pursuit group with the rest of the favorites and passed through the second round with 12 seconds of disadvantage in passing through the half of the circuit.

Little by little the trio was increasing the advantage to get to the T2 with 18 seconds ahead of the chasing group with the rest of the favorites.

In the 5 km of running, we lived an exciting sector, seeing how they tried to maintain the advantage ahead and behind with Mario Mola trying to cut the distance with respect to the head of the race.

From the first moment Jonathan Brownlee began to pull the group leaving with Vicent Luis leaving Blummenfelt behind who seemed injured. Behind Richard Murray followed by Mario Mola also left in search of the leading group.

In the passage through the first round, Brownlee and Blummenfelt were still in the lead but Murray was cutting distance passing only 4 seconds, Mola fourth passed 6 seconds.

With less than 2 kilometers for the finish, Mario Mola took the lead by pulling the group, leaving with Brownlee trying to leave the rest out of the fight for victory.

Finally Mario Mola , with a devastating attack in the absence of 1 km, he left alone to get the final victory in a time of 53: 24. The second one was Vicent Luis (53: 29) followed by Richard Murray (53: 32) occupying the third final position. Fernando Alarza finished in the 15ª position, Vicente Hernández was 38º and UXío Abuín the 42º
