Winning Odds

Female Race Participants

  • Michelle Vesterby: 44% (1-1)
  • Corinne Abraham: 26% (3-1)
  • Sofie Goos: 21% (4-1)
  • Camilla Lindholm Borg: 6% (16-1)
  • Celine Schaerer: 2% (64-1)

Kona Qualifying

Michelle Vesterby, Celine Schwerer and also very likely Corinne Abraham have already qualified in July. But there are a few others that can still qualify in August with a good result in Copenhagen:

  • Kristin Moeller should be okay with a fifth place finish, she has also registered for a number of other races.
  • Jeanne Collonge needs at least a podium finish to improve her total.
  • Pamela Tastets and Darbi Roberts will need at least a second place to have a reasonable chance for an August slot.
