“2014 KPR Observer” – Newsletter with up-to-date KPR information

DraftTitle LowRes

The Kona Pro Ranking (or KPR for short) is the system used to determine which Professional triathletes qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona. Once you have a closer look, it is not too hard to understand how the system works. However, the rankings change almost on a weekly basis, it takes a lot of work to keep up, and it’s not clear what the results will mean for the number of points required to qualify.

To make the KPR easier to follow and understand, I’m setting up the „2014 KPR Observer“ as a paid service. It consists of an Initial Information Package with a description of how the KPR works, my base predictions for the men’s and women’s cutoff, and graphs and descriptions of the KPR standings after the first 2014 races. You’ll receive the Initial Information Package at the time of purchase. As the season progresses, there will be EMail updates about who is already in, who is close to qualifying, how many slots are still open and updated cutoff estimates.

The KPR Observer is available in three different levels, starting at 24$. More details can be found on the sales page at https://gum.co/2014KPR.
