Alistair Brownlee flats, changes tyre and comes back to win back-to-back European Triathlon titles

Despite falling nearly two minutes behind due to a punctured tire, Alistair made a quick repair and sped his way back to the top to claim his second consecutive title after a monster run.

His brother Jonathan joined him on the podium in the No. 2 spot to give Great Britain top honors at the 2011 ETU European Championships.
