Mario Mola Three-Peats at WTS Hamburg

Mario Mola (ESP) made it a remarkable third straight WTS Hamburg victory on Saturday afternoon.

Mario Mola (ESP) made it a remarkable third straight WTS Hamburg victory on Saturday afternoon, delivering a superb run to take the tape once more in Germany. It had been a strong three-deep group of Johnny Brownlee (GBR), Vincent Luis (FRA) and Kristian Blummenfelt (NOR) that carved out a solid lead on the bikes, but Mola timed his attack to perfection as first he shut down the gap then created one of his own with an impressive 13:59 run to finish ahead of Luis in second and Richard Murray (RSA) in third.

“I saw that the leaders were running fast and working well and there was a gap opening up but the atmosphere is unbelievable here and I just love this course,” said Mola afterwards, still Series leader with two races left ahead of the Gold Coast Grand Final. “I’m happy how things are going right now but I know from experience that nothing is over until it’s over, so I’ll keep up the work and hope for the best come September.”
