Barclay Izzard finished just 8 seconds adrift of the podium in Hungary, with Gordon Benson closely following him over the line as the pair claimed the best of the British results in 5th and 6th respectively at a highly competitive meet on the ITU World Cup circuit. Chris Perham finished in 22nd, unable to match the pace of the front runners on this occasion having entered T2 among the large front pack of over twenty riders.

In the women's elite final the British trio of Sian Rainsley, Olivia Mathias and Sophie Alden all made a strong start in the water, emerging out within the top ten athletes and riding with a large lead pack on the bike. Mathias was then the quickest of the three Britons on foot and claimed 8th place, with Rainsley 14th and Alden 15th overall.

Matthew Willis finished 24th in the Junior European Cup final however will take consolation in having produced the fastest run split of the day.
