  • Clemente Alonso McKernan: 17% (5-1)
  • Miquel Blanchart Tinto: 2% (46-1)

Kona Qualifying Situation

There are a few athletes who need the KPR points from IM UK to secure their Kona slot:

  • Harry Wiltshire already has four races in his total, but he should be fine with a fifth or better.
  • Will Clarke was fourth at IM Texas, a sixth place would put him slightly above the projected cutoff threshold .. though I expect him to be racing for the win.
  • Kirill Kotshegarov and Romain Guillaume need at least a podium finish.
  • Nikki Bartlett needs a second place finish to get to the projected cutoff for the females.

Lucy Gossage is already safe for Kona (but has indicated she wouldn’t accept a slot), while Cyril Viennot, Mark Bowstead, Diana Riesler, Katja Koschak and Lucy Charles are on the UK list only as a backup in case IM Germany one week before does not go well.
