2018 ITU Worldcup Cape Town Elite men. Presented on US Sports Net By Chicago Steak Co.

Murray get's 2018 World Cup season off to winning start in Cape Town

The men’s race last year produced a perfect podium for the South Africa team, but this time around the likes of Jonas Schomberg and Joao Pereira were determined to make their presence felt.

It was Richard Murray who again emerged first out of the water, however, only to then struggle freeing himself from the wetsuit and losing ground, compatriot Henri Schoeman assuming the lead onto the bikes. Belgium’s Christophe de Keyser and Germany’s Schomberg ensured they were also in the lead group of bikes, ahead of a huge chasing pack.

After two laps of Cape Town stadium, Netherlands’ Van der Stel had negotiated his way to the front of the eleven-strong group, the train led by Grant Sheldon (GBR) doing its best to stay in touch.

It was Schomberg who then exited from T2 in pole position with Israel’s Sagiv and Alster working well together, but Murray was in position to seize the initiative. With Schoeman and Austria’s Lukas Pertl giving it everything to stay at his heels, Murray kicked on to the delight of the home crowd, crossing the line in a time of 52:15 and earn another World Cup win on home soil, Pertl delighted with his first ever World Cup podium.
