Cannes International Triathlon: Surprise win for Italy’s Giulio Molinari

Pre-race hype for this year’s Cannes International Triathlon centred around the return to racing of Kona 2014 champ Sebastian Kienle (GER), but it was Italy’s Giulio Molinari who romped home first, while Britain’s Leanda Cave took gold in the women’s race.


The race is quickly building a reputation as one of the most beautiful races on the calendar thanks to its location on the French Riviera, but offers a tough bike that demands strong climbing abilities and descending nous. The long-distance edition involves a 2km swim, 80km bike and 16k run.
