We hope you enjoyed the event as much as we did. In case you missed it here’s a quick round-up of the highlights.

In the women’s elite race, Georgia Taylor-Brown claimed a World Series win in her home city, and her teammate (also from Leeds) Jess Learmonth clinched her third international medal of 2019.

The race saw five of the six Brits competing finish in the top ten, with Non Stanford coming home in 5th, Vicky Holland 7th and Sophie Coldwell in 9th.

Jodie Stimpson made a positive return to the start line following injury to come home in 15th place.

In the men’s race Tom Bishop was Great Britain’s highest finisher, taking 13th place after a solid all-round performance. Bishop kept up with the pace over a large proportion of the 10km distance but was unable to inject anything extra towards the end.

Alex Yee clawed his way back through the field, but the gap proved too much to close and he came home 15th. Despite strong swim and bike legs, both Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee experienced difficulties on the run and finished down the field.
