2009 Tiszaujvaros Men

Russia enjoyed their most successful day of ITU Triathlon World Cup history as they swept aside every other nation to take the top three positions at the Tiszaujvaros ITU Triathlon World Cup in Hungary. Dmitry Polyansky crossed the line to win in a time of 1:48:45 with Alexander Brukhankov nine seconds behind. Ivan Tutukin ran his way into third as Russia went on to place four in the top five.

It was the Russian men who pushed the early pace as they forced an early breakaway with Denis Vasiliev orchestrating the early push of pace as the top ten men out of the 1500m swim escaped into the bike. As they shared the pacing between them the chase pack could only maintain a gap of thirty seconds as the small breakaway tried to make the most of the technical bike course.

The relentless work of Australias James Seear brought the chasers back into contention with just 10km of cycling to go, and a pack of 28 men exited second transition with 10km of running separating them from the finish tape.

Polyansky and Brukhankov quickly set the early pace, surging away from the chasers and pulling out a sizeable advantage. With just one kilometre to go Polyansky made his decisive move, pulling himself clear of the finishing kick of Brukhankov. Further back it look as though Volodymyr Polikarpenko from the Ukraine would take the bronze medal, however he faded on the final 2.5km lap allowing Tutukin onto the podium making it a clean sweep for the Russians. Gregory Rouault from France came through late on to take fourth.

Im really happy with my win because its the first victory for my country in 2009, said Polyansky. I knew Alexander [Brukhankov] had a very strong finishing sprint so I wanted to get away and I pushed on in the final kilometre. Im going to London to race at the Olympic venue next week at the Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship race before heading to Cyprus to prepare for the Grand Final on Australias Gold Coast.

My summer has gone very well, said Brukhankov. Im much faster than I was last year, but I was hoping for the win today, maybe there was a bit of fatigue still in my legs from the Hamburg Dextro Energy Triathlon ITU World Championship Series race from two weeks ago. Dmitry [Polyansky] and I lead right from the start of the run and so we backed off and just looked to maintain the lead. We have the same coach so for him it doesnt matter who wins, but I felt a bit tired in the final kilometre and couldnt respond.

My swimming is not very strong so I expected a really hard ride out there today, but I am very confident in my running ability, commented Tutukin. I knew I had a chance once I got off the bike with the leaders. Turbaevskiy and Polikarpenko are very experienced and strong runners but I knew that I had a chance and I took it.

Fueron los rusos quienes desde el comienzo impusieron un ritmo fuerte dirigidos por Denis Vasiliev quedndose un grupo de diez en cabeza a la salida de la natacin. El grupo de cabeza mantuvo la ventaja de treinta segundos respecto al grupo perseguidor en el tcnico recorrido de la bicicleta.

El incesante trabajo del australiano James Seear hizo que que el grupo perseguidor volviese a entrar en la pelea a tan slo 10 kilmetros para el final de la bicicleta y un grupo de 28 corredores sali junto a la salida de la segunda transicin, restndoles tan solo diez km para la cinta de meta. 

Rpidamente Polyansky y Brukhankov incrementaron el ritmo, aumentando la ventaja respecto a sus perseguidores. A un kilmetro de la meta Polyansky hizo su ataque definitivo, obteniendo una clara diferencia respecto a Brukhankov. Por detrs cuando pareca claro que el ucraniano Volodymyr Polikarpenko se iba a llevar la medalla de bronce, sufri una crisis a falta de 2,5km permitiendo que Tutukin consiguiese el pleno en el pdium para Rusia. El francs Gregory Rouault entr en cuarto posicin. 

Estoy muy contento con mi triunfo ya que supone la primera Victoria para mi pas en 2009, dijo Polyansky. Saba que Alexander [Brukhankov] tena un gran sprint final por lo que busqu escaparme e imponer mi ritmo en el ltimo kilmetro. Correr en la carrera del Campeonato del Mundo de Triatln ITU Dextro Energy de Londres, la prxima sede Olmpica, la semana que viene antes de ir a Chipre para preparar la Gran Final de Gold Coast, Australia.

Mi verano ha sido muy bueno, dijo Brukhankov. Estoy mucho ms rpido que el ao pasado, pero hoy esperaba ganar, puede que todava tenga un poco de cansancio en mis piernas tras la carrera del Campeonato del Mundo de Triatln ITU Dextro Energy de Hamburgo de hace dos semanas. Dmitry [Polyansky] y yo lideramos la carrera al inicio del segmento de carrera a pie y despus nos centramos en mantener la ventaja. Ambos tenemos el mismo entrenador y a l no le importa quien ganara, pero me sent un poco cansado en el ltimo kilmetro y no pude responder.

La natacin no es mi fuerte por lo que esperaba aguantar, confiando en mi destreza en la carrera a pie, coment Tutukin. Saba que tena una oportunidad de bajarme de la bicicleta con el grupo de cabeza. Turbaevskiy y Polikarpenko son unos experimentados y grandes corredores pero saba que tena una oportunidad y no la dej escapar.
