Pre-race Triathlon favorite Alistair Brownlee (GBR), the 24-year-old British prodigy, controlled his race from start to finish with a winning time of 1:46:25. Javier Gomez (ESP) captured silver and Jonathan Brownlee (GBR) completed the podium with bronze.
For the women, after an amazing sprint finish, Lisa Norden (SWE) claimed Silver with an identical time (1:59:48) as new Champion Nicola Spirig (SUI).

On Sunday, August 12, Jaroslav Kulhavy (CZE) became the new XC Champion after one of the most exciting races of the year. Right behind him Nino Schurter (SUI) secured Silver and Marco Aurelio Fontana (IT) Bronze.
Kulhavy’s victory in London was only XX1’s second XC race, having previously won the World Cup Championship. XX1 = Unstoppable.
