Unofficial KPR & 2016 Pro Kona Slot Allocation for July Cutoff

2016 Kona Rating Report Title Thumb

Here is my calculation of the KPR at the end of July, deciding 40 male and 28 female slots (in addition to the Automatic Qualifiers). My results are unofficial, the official results will be posted on the Ironman website at http://eu.ironman.com/triathlon/triathlon-rankings/points-system.aspx (but as far as I can tell shows the same data). I do not count AQs and athletes that haven’t validated my rankings, therefore it is a bit easier to determine the Top 40 male and Top 28 females. I will update this post with new information regarding declined slots and rolldown. For now, the athletes with a rank in brackets (e.g. “(42)”) are outside of the July slots. I will update this post with information about slot declines and rolldowns.

There is another cutoff in August, adding another 10 male and 7 female slots. Once the field has been completed, I will work on this year’s version of the Kona Rating Report, looking at the field and each athlete’s chances for a good result. The free report will be released in time before the Kona race, you can already pre-order your copy.

Updated Top 10 Ratings, Course Ratings and Kona Odds

After the first round of Kona qualifying has been completed, I have updated the pages on the Top 10 Rankings (overall and in each of the legs), the Course Ratings and the Kona Odds.

The main change on the female side is that Miranda Carfrae and Jodie Swallow are now back in my rankings – they had more than one full year without an Ironman finish before finishing in Austria and Cairns. Rinny takes the #2 spot in the overall rankings and is still the best runner in the sport, while Jodie is the best swimmer and #5 overall.

The changes on the men’s side have been small, Frodo is still the #1 rated athlete, but even with his great race in Roth the distance to Sebi and Brent has gotten a bit smaller.

Ironman Canada 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

After last year’s rain and cold (and corresponding slow times), this year’s race in Whistler was much quicker in all three legs. Andy Potts posted new swim and bike course records, but even though he ran a sub-3 marathon it was pretty obvious that he wasn’t going for the overall course record.

Kona Qualifying Implications

A lot of athletes were looking for a final push in their KPR total. Andy Potts, Pedro Gomes and Trevor Wurtele secured their slots. For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the July cutoff.

Ironman Lake Placid 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

With only a few previously rated finishers, the data is not very conclusive but quite in line with the previous Pro races there have been in Lake Placid: a course rating of -3:34 and slow across all three legs.

Heather Jackson had a great day, smashing both the bike course record  (previously held by Amy Marsh from 2010) and the overall course record (previously held by Heather Wurtele from 2011) by ten minutes.

Kona Qualifying Implications

Heather Jackson validated her Kona slot by winning the race, and Alicia Kaye who was in all likelihood safe before the race finished third, gaining some more IM racing experience. For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the July cutoff.

Ironman Switzerland 2016 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

This year’s course in Zürich had a new run course, but the impact on the course rating has been minimal (run adjustment of -0:15, new run course rating of 0:14). Overall conditions have been typical as well, if anything the non-wetsuit swim for the Pros was a bit slower and the bike was a bit faster than in previous years.

Even without being aided by fast conditions, there were a few course records. Just one week after winning Challenge Roth with a fantastic 8:22, Daniela Ryf also won IM Switzerland (posting a new record for the shortest time between long-distance triathlon wins) in sub-9, beating the old course record by Karin Thürig from 2010 by almost ten minutes. (Karin’s bike course record still stands.) In addition Roman Deisenhofer set a new male bike course record of 4:26:15, improving the old time of 4:27:42 by Ronnie Schildknecht from 2012.

Kona Qualifying Implications

A lot of athletes were looking for a final push in their KPR total. Ronnie Schildknecht, Timo Bracht, Jan Van Berkel and David Plese secured a July slot, on the women’s side Emma Bilham and Ariane Monticelli are also safe. Daniela validated her Automatic Qualifier spot with the IM Switzerland win.

For the full rankings at the end of July, check out my post on the first July cutoff.

Male Race Results

Ronnie Schildknecht had a strong bike ride and an even better run to win his 9th IM Switzerland. Timo Bracht had a solid race including a strong run to finish second. Jan Van Berkel tried his best to go with Ronnie Schildknecht on the run, almost ran himself into the ground but still finished with a sub-3 run in third place.

Female Race Results

Daniela Ryf swam with Celine Schärer, one of the fastest Ironman swimmers, then rode away on the bike and controlled her effort on the run. Second place went to Emma Balham with a strong bike and solid run – her second second place in her second Ironman. Michi Herlbauer was working hard all day taking the last spot on the podium.
