Andrew Messick interview on Competitor Radio

Andrew Messick, the CEO of WTC, recently chatted with Bob Babbitt from Competitor Radio. The Messick/Babbit interview can be found here: http://competitorradio.competitor.com/2014/05/andrew-messick-3/.

Andrew made a few interesting statements regarding Kona and Kona qualification (starting about 23 minutes into the interview). His statements have re-started my thinking about the KPR, but I will need some more time to think through some of the implications. Here, I just wanted to record Andrew’s statements (both for me and others interested in this subject).

The following are all direct quotes by Andrew (all I added was to give some context if necessary).

Regarding the need for previous champions to validate by finishing a full Ironman

There’s two sides: One is „I’m gonna save my legs“. But then they show up and do this race in Germany in July [referring to Challenge Roth]. And so is it really saving your legs? We can’t help but notice that and it detracts pretty dramatically from the credibility of the argument that we’re doing it to save our legs. Roth’s a great race, there’s no doubt about it, and I don’t blame professional athletes for making a living however they want to. But then you need to use a different argument when you’re talking about validation. I can’t begrudge Mirinda for punching her Kona ticket in [Florida] last year. We have a set of rules, and there are always ways in which motivated people can get around the intent of the rule. Sometimes we tolerate it, and if we find it intolerable, we change the rules.

On potential changes to the KPR

We feel that a lot of the KPR elements are correct and accurate. Although, we probably will change – maybe substantially – how the KPR works in 2015. We haven’t made any decision yet, but we have listened to a lot of feedback around depth of payout and dilution of field. With the number of races that we’re adding on our global series, you could argue that it’s outstripping the magnitude of a quality professional athlete pool. And so one of the things we’re having a serious look at is whether we should have fewer races that have points and pro dollars, particularly in North America and have those prize purses be bigger, have points be higher and pay deeper.

The following statements were made in the context of 70.3s, but my understanding is that the number of races and St. George were just an example, and that they are also valid for full-distance races:

Instead of having 30 races [in North America], what if you had six that were like St. George. Bigger prize money, and you pay deeper, so there’s still a compelling earning opportunity for the Pros. And some of the Pros who aren’t necessarily top 5 athletes still get paid, they still get some points, they still have a chance to get to worlds. You could make a pretty compelling case that the caliber of racing and the interest would be better if you repurposed a lot of that prize money towards a smaller number of races and let the big boys duke it out.

Challenge Vichy 2013 – Predictions

Previous Year’s TOP 3

Last years’s Challenge Vichy had to be shortened to a half-distance race because of extreme hear. The results I’m showing are from 2011.

IM Canada (Whistler) 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

With an adjustment of 0:14, the new course in Whistler appears to be a little bit slower than the old course in Penticton (course rating of 4:17, now used for Challenge Penticton). Of the three legs, the bike appears to be the hardest (adjustment of -1:13), but even a run rating of 2:41 is still relatively slow. 

Male Race Results

Trevor Wurtele had a great day, winning his home IM. He has posted better IM times on faster courses (Arizona and New York), but this was probably his best, most even race. He put himself in a great position on the swim and bike, then posted the fastest run and win by more than five minutes over Matthew Russell. Completing the podium was Paul Amey, who lead a surprisingly large contingent of racers backing up after IM Mont Tremblant in search for the last KPR points to qualify. In addition to Paul, Mike Schifferle in 4th and Dominik Berger in 6th place qualified for Kona, while Bruno Clerbout (who had not raced since IM France and was the best rested of the potential qualifiers) was too far back from decent points and DNF’d.

Female Race Results

On the women’s side, we had Olesya Prystsayko backing up from IM Mont Tremblant in search for KPR points, but she was far off from the required win. Uli Bromme took the win, compensating for her typical slow swim with the race best bike and run splits. She was followed by Lisa Ribes and Gillian Moody:

IM Louisville 2013 – Analyzing Results

Race Conditions

The conditions in Louisville were pretty fast this year: I’ve calculated a race adjustment of 6:10 while the new course rating is at 0:19. The bike was pretty typical, but both the swim and the bike were quicker than in the past years.

Male Race Results

Chris McDonald won the race in a new course record. He was close to the lead on the swim, then posted a new bike course record and also the fastest run of the day. Last year’s winner Patrick Evoe and Thomas Gerlach were close together for most of the day, then Patrick pulled away to secure the runner up spot. The same podium as last year, just in a slightly different order.

Female Race Results

On the female side, Kate Bevilaqua had a great race, posting better than expected times in all three legs. She was in the lead (or within just a minute or so) for the whole day, but it seemed she never have a comfortable enough lead to relax for a minute. She didn’t have the best time for any of the legs, but won by more than four minutes.
