It was another fantastic World Cup with a stellar line up in Arzachena, but the result was a familiar one. Vincent Luis has been imperious since the return to racing in Hamburg in September and though Norway’s Kristian Blummenfelt pushed him all the way on Saturday afternoon, it was a third gold for the Frenchman. Completing the podium, Britain’s Alistair Brownlee showed he will still mix it with the best after a strong finish earned him bronze.
