Thomas, Lavelle Win Rev3 Florida Duathlon #triathlon
By 20 miles into the bike, the race had gotten stretched out. Andrew Starykowicz (USA) lagged after the first run, but used a race-best bike split (1:59:56) to make up the difference quickly. Starykowicz and Thomas raced neck-and-neck for most of the flat and windy bike, with Collins a couple minutes back. In the last 10 miles, Starykowicz put just over three minutes into Thomas, who had the second-fastest bike of the day with a 2:03:08. Collins had the third fastest bike (2:06:40) and came into T2 6:30 down. Another few minutes behind Collins was a pack that included Zymstev (2:09:08), Cunningham (2:09:18), and Collington (2:09:18). Leto was with the group, but struggled after a blocking penalty and came in with a 2:18:19 bike split.
