Magnus Ditlev couldn’t hold off Kristian Blummenfelt in the closing stages of CLASH Daytona on Saturday, but the Dane will leave Florida $20k richer after rocketing up the Challenge Family Pro Athlete World Bonus rankings.

The Dane produced a fine swim and a typically blistering bike leg to go into T2 over two minutes clear of the Olympic and World Champion. But that never looked likely to be enough as Blummenfelt passed him comfortably to claim top spot on the podium.

Ditlev’s second though saw him move up from eighth to second on the Challenge Bonus rankings, meaning he takes home $20k as a result.

Patrick Lange claimed top spot for the men – claiming a bonus of $30k in the process. Fellow German Anne Haug topped the final women’s standings.

Britain’s Lucy Hall, who finished an excellent second behind Jackie Hering in Daytona, claimed third in the women’s standings. Laura Siddall – fifth in Daytona – also occupied fifth in the final rankings.

The rankings pay five-deep for men and women, with first place giving $30k, second $20k, third $14k, fourth $8k and fifth $3k.
