I have just released the 2017 edition of the KPR Observer, following Kona qualifying for the Professional athletes.
The Kona Pro Ranking (or KPR for short) is the system used to determine which Professional triathletes qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona. The 2017 KPR Observer consists of an Initial Information Package about the KPR and ongoing updates during the season.
The Initial Information Package (delivered at the time of purchase) contains:
- a description of how the KPR works in qualifying Pros for Kona
- changes to the 2017 rules and their implications
- base projections for the men’s and women’s cutoff
- graphs and descriptions of the current KPR standings
During the season, there will be at least six EMail Updates (and probably ten) about the KPR Standings, who is already in, who is close to qualifying, how many slots are still open and updated estimates of where the cutoffs will occur.
To give you a short glimpse of the material in the KPR Observer, here is a look at the women’s and men’s KPR rankings at the end of the 2016 racing season:
If you want to qualify as a Pro, coach a Pro athlete, write about professional Ironman racing or are otherwise interested in the KPR, this is must-read information! The time you’ll save with the KPR Observer is easily worth the price of 29$ for the full season.
(If you are a Professional athlete looking to qualify for Kona, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive information about a complimentary copy.)
