WTS Yokohama 2015: Javier Gomez beats Alistair Brownlee to gold

Many expected WTS Yokohama to be a straight duel between Britain’s Alistair Brownlee and Spanish duo Javier Gomez and Mario Mola – and it proved to be exactly that, with Brownlee narrowly beaten to gold by Gomez on the final stages of a thrilling run.


After the rain and slippery conditions of the women’s race had largely abated, the men enjoyed largely dry roads and clear skies to cap off the fifth stop in the WTS circuit and mark the halfway stage of an exciting season that has now produced four winners in five races.
