The Pro qualifying for Kona 2015 is getting into its final, decisive weeks. To learn more about how the KPR works, check out the short video below on the KPR. To follow the KPR and the athletes qualifying for Kona at the end of the qualifying cycle, you purchase the KPR Observer for the reduced end-of-season price of 19$ at https://gum.co/2015KPR.
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.
My 2015 KPR Observer makes understanding and following the KPR rankings easy. It consists of an Initial Information Package about the KPR and ongoing updates via EMail during the season.
Here’s a ten minute video with an overview of the KPR and the information you’ll receive in the KPR Observer:
The Initial Information Package(delivered at the time of purchase) contains:
- a description of how the KPR works in qualifying Pros for Kona
- base predictions of 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. (Some more details can be found in the post on “KPR Observer Preview“.)
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 and will help you gain a much deeper insight into the KPR at a fraction of the time if you had to do it yourself!
