Paul Ambrose (AUS) and Taylor Reid (CAN) hammered out the fastest bikes on the day as the pair dismounted their rides accompanied by Ben Kanute (USA) and Andy Potts (USA). It was apparent from the get-go on the run that Reid, Kanute and Potts were the strongest on the day. Taylor grabbed the lead early while Kanute kept the Canuck in his sights. The pair were never separated by more than 25 seconds for the first half of the run while Potts was hanging back about 1:20 and likely shacking off the effects of a fall off his bike entering T2. In the closing half of the run, Kanute faltered and Potts capitalized on the situation. Taylor would grab the finish line tape for the win with Potts and Kanute making the podium.
Alicia Kaye (CAN) exited the water in third behind Helle Frederiksen (DEN) and Heather Lendway (USA), just six seconds back of the leader. Within the first mile of the bike, Kaye stormed to the lead and carried 4:44 advantage on Frederiksen heading into transition off the bike.
Kaye headed out on the run and struggle a bit while Stephanie Roy (CAN) was tearing through the field. Handing back time to much of the field, Kaye's lead started to evaporate in the San Jaun heat as Roy made the pass into second late in the run. Kaye would eventually get herself across the finish line for the win but not before holding off a late charge from Roy who crossed the line a mere 30 seconds after the winner.
