KPR Update: August Qualifier

August 26, 2014 by · 1 Comment
Filed under: Analysis 

All the qualifying races for Kona 2014 have been run, and we have the final KPR ranking that decides who of the Professional athletes will get a slot. There is still some uncertainty whether all athletes accept their slot, and there may still be some rolldown – both from August athletes and maybe also from July athletes that decide not to race after all.

Women

Most of the slots were already clear after Mont Tremblant (Amber Ferreira, Sara Gross, Melnaie Burke, Beth Shutt). The final slots were decided in Copenhagen (Daniela Ryf, Sofie Goos) and Louisville (Jackie Arendt):

Name Country Points
Ryf, Daniela CHE 7810
Ferreira, Amber USA 7365
Gross, Sara CAN 6620
Burke, Melanie NZL 6190
Shutt, Beth USA 6090
Goos, Sofie BEL 5365
Arendt, Jackie USA 5170

In addition to these seven athletes, Leanda Cave validated her automatic qualifier slot by winning in Sweden.

Mareen Hufe narrowly missed the last slot (by 5 points!), she has to hope for a rolldown:

Name Country Points
Hufe, Mareen DEU 5165
Naeth, Angela CAN 4890
Csomor, Erika HUN 4780

Update Aug 27th: It looks as if all athletes accepted their slots and that there will be no rolldown for the women.

Men

The race for Kona went down to the wire as well, with Harry Wiltshire (2nd in Japan after racing Sweden a week before) and Chris McDonald (winner in Louisville) snatching slots in the last races:

Name Country Points
Bracht, Timo DEU 5410
Halksworth, Daniel GBR 5230
McDonald, Chris USA 5015
Holtham, Elliot CAN 4725
Tollakson, TJ USA 4640
Wiltshire, Harry GBR 4385
Cunningham, Richie AUS 4335
Zyemtsev, Viktor UKR 4280
Robertson, Peter AUS 4215
Brader, Christian DEU 4075
Passuello, Domenico ITA 4075
Daerr, Justin USA 4050
Schildknecht, Ronnie CHE 3915
Raelert, Andreas DEU 3610

Timo Bracht will very likely decline his slot, so Domenico should also make it to Kona.

Update Aug 26th: Domenico Passuello tweeted that he has now been offered a slot. It is unclear who declined a slot, Timo is the obvious guess.

Update Aug 27th: Justin Daerr is now marked as a qualifier as well. This means that both Timo and Victor must have declined their slots.

Update Aug 29th: Ronnie Schildknecht is also marked as a qualifier. At this time, it is not apparent who has declined his slot, all athletes still have their “Q”s. The slot was opened because Dirk Bockel (one of the July qualifiers) declined his slot after all. Dirk had to decline because of a hip injury.

Update Aug 30th: Rolldown has been finalized and the official list was announced. Please refer to my Kona Startlist for the full list and ongoing updates.

Update Aug 31st: Apparently, the WTC press release was not the last word: Cameron Brown decided to decline his slot after all, allowing Andreas Raelert to make it to Kona at the very last minute. (I’ve asked WTC about it, they said that athletes have until Aug 31 – today – to complete registration and there could still be changes.) 

The next athletes have to hope for a rolldown:

Name Country Points
Thomschke, Markus DEU 3460
Ambrose, Paul GBR 3440

Ironman Hawaii 2014 – Pro Startlists

August 30, 2014 by · 1 Comment
Filed under: PreRace 

At the end of the qualifying period and handling all rolldowns, the Pro start lists for Kona are finalized. At this point, there can be no more additions to the list – when athletes can’t start there won’t be any more rolldowns.

At this point, the bibs are preliminary and based on the procedure WTC used in the last years to assign the bibs (last year’s winner gets #1 or #101, the rest according to KPR rankings, and #13 is not assigned). As soon as an official bib list is available, I’ll update the numbers as necessary.

I plan to update this post (based on the original pro list from Ironman.com) with new developments, so that it always reflects the current information.

Updates

Cameron Brown has declined his slot, and Andreas Raelert managed to get a last minute slot. This is not yet reflected in the start lists.

Women Pro Slots for Kona

August 28, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Analysis 

Over the last weeks, there has been a lot of discussion around the issue of Women Pro slots for Kona. Tawnee and I have repeatedly discussed what was happening on our EndurancePlanet podcast, and I thought that this is a good time to sum up the recent developments and issues.

50WomenToKona

In the summer of 2013, the issue of extra Kona slots for women Pros has been raised by Rachel Joyce in a witsup article. Last year, the discussion never really gained momentum. Then in July 2014, a new Twitter account with the name of „50WomenToKona“ took up the issue, contacted a lot of triathletes, managed to get a lot of interest and is still actively pushing the issue.

To sum up the discussion, the argument for men to have more slots than women is based on the fact that there are more men participating in Ironman events, both at the age group and the Professional level. The counter arguments are that participation numbers shouldn’t determine the size of the field for Championship events, that the top end of the field of the women is as close as for the men, and that women simply deserve equal treatment in 2014.

Boulder Meeting (Early August)

With the mounting pressure around the number of Kona slots, a meeting was set up between WTC CEO Andrew Messick and a number of Pro women in the week before IM Boulder. Other Pros had the chance to at least listen to the discussion via a conference call. I was not part of this meeting, so I have to rely on the accounts of the meeting – mostly from interviews by Andrew (with Triathlete and with Slowtwitch) and an interview that Mirinda Carfrae did with Triathlete.

Among other things discussed, Andrew acknowledged the push for extra slots, but instead of agreeing to something specific, he indicated that

„[t]he women we talked to were not at all focused on a specific number, they just wanted it to be the same. So we’re going to look at that for 2015, [… asking] what is the right number of professional athletes that should be starting at the world championship.”

Since that interview, I have not seen this issue discussed in public except for a few tweets by Jordan Rapp, and no final decision has been announced by WTC.

Extra Slots for 2014?

Another issue discussed in the Boulder meeting was extra women Pro slots for 2014. I don’t have any official information on this, most of what is in the public was written by Jordan Rapp in a thread on the Slowtwitch forum.

Apparently, WTC offered extra WPRO slots for 2014 – either an extra 10 or 15 slots. (There is conflicting information about this.) I’m not aware of the specific procedure that these slots would have been assigned (e.g. how many extra July and/or August slots), but the Pro women were to agree whether or not to have extra slots for 2014. (Again, specific details are sketchy – was that just a majority decision or did a decision require unanimity?) In case the WPROs decided to accept the extra slots, they were expected to participate in a one-day event focused on „women issues“. (Once again, unclear if this was to be an internal workshop or a „PR event“ for WTC.) All of the Top 50 women were given a chance to weigh in (coordinated by Rachel Joyce), and the decision would be made by the athletes already qualified at that point (28 point slots at the end of July plus automatic qualifiers).

The extra slots didn’t get the required support, the main argument was that „moving the goalposts“ wouldn’t be fair: Some athletes raced another IM to make sure they qualify (e.g. Natascha Badmann and Kristin Möller who backed up in Switzerland after Germany), some decided to have a lighter schedule (e.g. Amy Marsh who tried to qualify with another 70.3 or Angela Naeth who decided against racing another IM). Other examples include Mareen Hufe who might not have DNF’d in Frankfurt after it was clear she would not get the points to get a spot in the Top 28 for July; and there are probably athletes – further away form the Top 28 or 35 – who might have added another race to their schedule.

Lots of Open Questions

As far as I can see, the only thing that seems certain is that there will be no changes in the number of WPRO slots for Kona 2014. We don’t have any hard announcements by WTC concerning 2015, neither regarding equality of slots nor a specific number of slots. There are a lot of other loose ends for Kona 2015 qualifying (apparently the number of races counting for the KPR score is also still open). We only have a few more days before the first Ironman with KPR points for Kona 2015 (Ironman Wisconsin on September 7th), and it would only be fair to all Pro athletes to know the rules for qualifying. I hope that WTC will soon announce more details and make things a bit more predictable!

MetaMan Bintan 2014 – Analyzing Results

August 27, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: RaceResults 

Race Conditions

With an adjustment of 4:26 this year has been the fastest we have seen from MetaMan (new course rating -4:15) – maybe a sign that this year not too many athletes are focused on Kona and tried to save their legs? Both the bike and the run have been faster than before, but the heat and humidity still cause a pretty slow run (run adjustment of -4:29).

Male Race Results

Cameron Brown and Courtney Ogden were racing with one another for almost the whole day – it was only in the final part of the run that Cam moved ahead to win a nice paycheck. Courtney finished second, and Fredrik Croneborg third. Frederik again had the best run, but had lost too much time with a flat on the bike to be in contention.

Challenge Penticton 2014 – Analyzing Results

Filed under: RaceResults 

Race Conditions

Challenge Penticton is held on the same course as the old Ironman Canada (before that moved to Whistler). Nonetheless, the results have been a bit quicker for the Challenge race – I’m not sure why. The race adjustment of 14:16 is consistent with what we’ve seen last year (course rating of 14:07) while for IM Canada the course rating was between 4 and 6 minutes. As usual, the lake swim was pretty slow (-4:48, about as slow as the swim in Kona) while the bike and run were faster.

Male Race Results

Jeff Symonds defended his title from last year without too much drama: His bike was good enough to be in the lead, so a 2:50 marathon (slow for him) was enough to win by more than 20 minutes. Chris Bagg and Simon Cochrane completed the podium.
