We catch up with Thorsten Radde of trirating.com featuring our Kona Preview and covering the latest and greatest in professional triathlon including:

  • SuperMoms
    • Many pro women are having babies, and with the points system it’s making it really hard to comeback and get to Kona. Is the current setup fair to these SuperMoms or could improvements be made?
    • Thorsten explains some possible solutions and/or exceptions that could be made to make it more fair for moms to make their comeback in the pro ranks after they took time off for baby.
    • Some of the recent SuperMoms: Rachel Joyce, Sonja Tajsich, Eva Wutti, Jocelyn McCauley, Kim Schwabenbauer, Liz Blatchford, etc.
  • 70.3 Champs
    • This year saw a bigger pro women field with the race split over 2 days. Is Kona next?
  • Kona preview
    • Qualifiers as of the final cutoff, Tawnee’s picks and Thorsten’s KPR.
