Kona Qualifying

There were a few athletes looking for Kona points in Whistler:

  • Mark Bowstead would have needed a third place, his seventh place finish means he’s now in #51 in the points rankings and unlikely to receive a slot.
  • Marino Vanhoenacker is in the Top40 and eligible for a July slot, even if his 11th place finish didn’t improve his total by much.
  • Callum Millward DNF’d with a flat early on the bike and couldn’t improve his position. He’s now in #42, and can still hope for a rolldown or an August slot.
  • Brent McMahon was already safe before the race.
