Vincent Luis capped a brilliant day for France on the Gold Coast on Sunday afternoon, following the team’s U23-Junior Mixed Relay World title with a WTS gold of his own on a blowy afternoon in Brisbane. Mario Mola’s own place in the sport’s history books was rarely in doubt as he crossed the line in second place looking typically assured on route to securing a remarkable third Series win. South Africa’s Richard Murray crossed the line for a hard-earned bronze, while Jacob Birtwhistle’s 7th place saw him take Series bronze.
Vince et Pierre ??????????? ????????

2017 has been an amazing
2017 has been an amazing year in the triathlon world. There's been some impressive performances, and even some records broken. So here are some of the records of 2017.

Okay, I'm going to go straight in on the Ironman record, and we're talking IRONMAN branded, rather than just iron-distance record. And in case you missed it, Tim Don absolutely crushed it at IRONMAN Brazil earlier this year. He did it in an incredible time of seven hours and 40 minutes, breaking Lionel Sanders' previous record of seven hours and 44 minutes, set only last year at IRONMAN Arizona. Now, another little fact for you here, this made Tim member number 44 to the Sub-8 hour club. And we were really looking forward to watching Tim at the IRONMAN World Championships in Kona, considering the form he was in, but sadly, he was knocked off his bike just a few days before the race. But we are pleased to say that he is recovering well from the incident. And hopefully we'll look forward to seeing him back in 2018.
Whilst we're talking about the IRONMAN World Champs, we certainly can't do a records video without talking about Patrick Lange. After breaking Mark Allen's 27 year old run course record, at last year's IRONMAN World Champs, he came back again this year, and broke the overall course record. He did it in an incredible time of eight hours, one minute and 40 seconds, breaking Craig Alexander's previous record of eight hours and three minutes, set in 2011.
Well, another record was broken in the same race, but this time it was on the bike by Cameron Wurf. He was the first into T2 while shattering Normann Stadler's four hour 18 bike course record, set in 2006. Wurf beat it by almost six minutes, but interestingly, he wasn't the only person to go under the previous record. Both Lionel Sanders and Sebastian Kienle both beat Stadler's previous record. But nobody could match ex-pro cyclist, Cameron Wurf, on the day.
Flora Duffy, well what a year she has had. By winning the WTS Grand Final in Rotterdam, she became the lady with the most ever WTS wins in one year. That came to a grand total of six in 2017, beating Gwen Jorgensen's previous record of five. Now, she did them at Yokohama, Leeds, Hamburg, Edmonton, Stockholm and Rotterdam.
And another record that Flora broke this year was in Yokohama, where she had the biggest ever winning margin in a WTS event. She won by an amazing one minute and 51 seconds. Now that's quite impressive, considering just the level of competition you have in WTS events, and actually just how short the events are too.
Over in New Zealand it was Dougal Allan that won the iconic Challenge Wanaka for a second year running. And in doing so, he set a new bike course record and an overall course record.

Cycling is among the rare sports that have always featured on the Olympic programme. Road cycling, however, was not on the programme of the Paris 1900, St Louis 1904 or London 1908 Games, while track cycling wasn't in the programme of the Stockholm 1912 Games.
The first road event in Olympic history took place in 1896 on the marathon route at the first Games of the modern era in Athens. The race started in Athens, headed towards Marathon, then returned to Athens, at the Phaliron velodrome.
Olympic cycling was added to the women's programme in Los Angeles in 1984, with an individual road event.
