It took a second best bike to make up most of the deficit he had after the swim, but he was still eight minutes behind Frenchman Romain Guillaume. But Boris’ second best marathon was more than 15 minutes better than Romain’s and he took the lead after 28k. By then he was only threatened by Victor Del Corral who had the best marathon and kept the pressure on, but Boris won by 2 1/2 minutes in front of Victor and Romain.
