‘Wow. Amazing to be able to race downtown Bergen. Thanks to all involved for making this event possible. Came away with second place in the end. Kudos to Dorian Coninx for taking the win and Vetle Bergsvik Thorn for making his first ever World Cup podium!’

Of course Kristian Blummenfelt was hoping to win yesterday at the first World Triathlon Cup in Bergen, Norway – his home country – but the Olympic Champion and World Champion had to settle for second place. Here you’ll find our full race report. For now we can enjoy some beautiful photos taken by World Triathlon / Janos M. Schmidt.
