IMWhistler_LogoCourse Conditions

The most recent course changes in Whistler made the course even harder than before: This year’s adjustment of -19:00 was about 16 minutes slower than the previous course rating. The new course is slow across the board, both the swim, bike and run had negative adjustments.

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.
