Britain's Jess Learmonth won her second consecutive women's race at the Super League Triathlon (SLT) event in Munich, while France's Vincent Luis triumphed in the men’s, with both races held under the equaliser format at the Olympiapark in the German city.

This featured an individual 2.4-kilometre time trial on the bike to determine the starting order for the second stage, which involved two triathlons of a 300-metre lake swim, 3.6km cycle and 1.8km run.

Learmonth contributed to her country’s gold-medal effort in the mixed relay at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, and has now helped the SLT Eagles to win the first two races of the Championship Series season.

She dominated in last week’s women’s triple mix race in London, and today won by 11 seconds in Bavaria.

France’s Emilie Morier of the SLT Scorpions clocked the fastest time in the time trail, but Learmonth was out in front by the end of the first swimming leg and maintained a comfortable lead for the rest of the race.

For the second consecutive weekend, two other British triathletes made up the podium in the women’s race as the Scorpions’ Georgia Taylor-Brown finished second and the Sharks’ Beth Potter came third.

"I wasn’t sure if today’s format would suit me as the time-trial bike leg was making me a bit apprehensive - I felt like I was warming up for a cycle race," Learmonth admitted.

"I had to hammer the bike legs and hope for the best in the triathlons, and because it was so technical, like London, it was quite hard for chase groups to work together and pull through.

"It was mayhem as usual out there."

In the men’s race, last year’s men’s individual SLT winner pipped Britain’s Jonny Brownlee to victory for the Scorpions.

Neither Luis or the Cheetahs’ Brownlee, nor last week’s winner in London Hayden Wilde of New Zealand, finished in the top 10 of the time-trial.

In stage two, Luis made up time to be first out of the lake, but it was Olympic silver medallist Alex Yee of Britain who led at the halfway stage.

However, the French triathlete took advantage of Yee missing his box in transition to the swim and Wilde’s fall before entering the water to re-take the lead

Brownlee followed him closely for most of the second triathlon and the pair built a 15-second advantage over the chasing pack after the bike leg.

Luis earned a crucial short chute for the final run by being first out of the pool in the first triathlon, and applied his card as he approached the finish line to end four seconds quicker than Brownlee.

Third-placed Yee of the Eagles was 15 seconds behind Luis, who takes an overall lead for the series.

Luis said of his victory: "I had to really dig deep on the swim to grab the short chute and I was pretty empty on the last bike and run.

"I had to steal some points from Hayden [Wilde] and first feels a lot better than the second I got in London!

"I even thought about not using the short chute to set up a fair sprint with Jonny but he was strong on the run and attacked a few times, and I didn’t want to waste what I’d fought for on the swim."

The Eagles top the team leaderboard with 182 points, followed by the Scorpions with 139 and Sharks on 129.

The third event of the four-leg SLT Championship Series is scheduled to be held in Jersey next Saturday (September 18), with a brutal enduro format featuring three repeats of a swim, bike and run.
