 More than 900 competitors from 57 nations lined up alongside the Danube River – in the shadow of the incredible x-bionic® sphere, and conditions were favourable with light winds and a temperature of 20 – 28°C.

 The elite women’s line-up included Heather Wurtele (CAN), Annabel Luxford (AUS),  Emma Pallant (GBR) and Lucy Charles (GBR) – fresh from her win at Ironman Lanzarote.

 Charles took an early lead, exiting the water 25 secs in front of Luxford, followed by Salthouse (+ 01.26). However out on the bike leg, Luxford took the lead with Charles dropping down to third place, whilst Kimberly Morrison (GBR) put in a strong performance to climb up to second place 45km into the bike leg.

Entering T2 it would be Kimberly Morrison (GBR) in first, Luxford (AUS) in second and Wurtele (NZL) in third.
