For the pro men it was Sam Betten of Australia and Brent McMahon of Canada leading the way in the swim. They were the only two pro men to navigate the 1.9k swim in under 24 minutes. However, they had plenty of company right behind them.
As is often the case in a field this good, nothing is really decided until the run. There was nobody making a break from this field on the 90k bike course.
Five of the pro men finished the bike around the 2:03:30 mark. It was a game of cat-and-mouse until they got their running shoes on and It was Time Reed of Australia who simply outran the rest of the field with his 1:20:02 run split. Nobody could come close to that.
