Back-to-back wins for Mario Mola at the World Triathlon Cup
The Portuguese Joao Silva takes the podium and Fernando Alarza finishes fourth
Mario Mola, the triathlete from the Balearic Islands, claimed victory in the second race of the World Triathlon Cup, held in the New Zealand town of New Plymouth after a spectacular head-to-head battle in the final kilometers with the Olympic sub-champion Javier Gómez Noya. The Mallorcan achieved his second straight victory after demonstrating his magnificent form last week in Mooloolaba at the start of the World Series. The sensational display of BH triathletes was rounded out by Portugal’s Joao Silva, who took third, barely six seconds ahead of Fernando Alarza, of Talavera de la Reina.
The race started at a fast pace in the swim stage where the Californian Tommy Zafares emerged with a slight lead on the stretched-out group of favorites, which was led by Joao Silva. A group of 35 congregated in the first part of the bike stage, split by the Australian Dan Wilson and the Frenchman Ben Shawn who had sprinted ahead to T2 with a 25 second advantage over the group with Mola, Gómez Noya and Alarza and a 50 second advantage over the next group of followers, who had no options left for the final pursuit. In the first two kilometers of the foot race, Mola and Noya flexed their muscle and hunted down the two lone leaders, both fighting to achieve the ultimate glory in their own right. The Mallorcan and the Galician fought three last contentious kilometers and finally the BH athlete showed his prowess in the deciding meters and won the race, barely three seconds faster than Gómez Noya. Both athletes congratulated each other with a hug at the finish line, showing the enormous respect and admiration that each has for the other. Behind them, the Portuguese Joao Silva did not give in to the push from Fernando Alarza, who finished third and fourth, respectively, resulting in three athletes sponsored by BH finishing among the top four.
Mario Mola’s victory once again showed off the talents of the Mallorcan, who was already one of the best in the World Series in 2013. Undoubtedly he will be fighting for the crown with the biggest names in the sport, like the Brownlee brothers, as well as Gómez Noya.
The enormous progress made by Silva is also sure to continue after leading the World Series last season in the first two races. Meanwhile, Alarza will attempt to continue his promising trajectory and must be taken into account on the most important dates on the calendar.
The member of the BH Tri Team dropped back in the last athletics lap of the fight for triumph. Fernando Alarza completes another great actuation to take eighth place and once again on the Top-10.
Mario Mola made a great comeback to take the silver, Vicente Hernández finished fourth and Fernando Alarza seventh on the Gold Coats.
