Once again the cold, the rain and the harshness of the routes have become Victor's allies to make him climb to the top of the podium, this time in the Long Distance Triathlon of l'Alpe d'Huez.
Very cold water for swimming, and around 4 'lost with the main favorites. The bicycle segment would serve to turn the race around, an octet was formed in the lead, while behind Victor alone he was hunting for lagging triathletes and kept the distance with the race head in the first 100kms. The last 15km of bicycle are decisive, the climb to the mythical Alpe d'Huez, marks many differences and has helped Victor to reach T2 in third position.
A penalty box to James Cunnama, first classified up to that point, prayed for third place. Victor then started in second position and chased the first classified, Aaron Farlow at km2. From that moment the differences with the pursuers were widening and he finally managed to enter the winning goal with more than 6min of advantage over the second classified, which was finally Reto Hug and 9min over Aaron Farlow, who held third place.
