Kona Qualifying

There are a few athletes that will be looking to qualify for Kona in Lake Placid:

  • Brent McMahon had a disappointing DNF at IM Brasil but is still well placed for qualifying. A 5th place (720 points) should be enough for him to secure a slot, but he’ll be looking for more.
  • Matt Chrabot, Michael Weiss and Chris Leiferman would need at least a fourth place (960 points) for a slot.
  • TJ Tollakson also has a chance to qualify, he would need a second place (1600 points) or better.

Matt Russell and Andy Potts are already safe for Kona, they’ll mainly be racing for a good result and a win at Lake Placid.
