Watts per/kg needed to qualify for 70.3 worlds and Kona

This lists the FTP/Kg for a bunch of Kona qualifiers.


The point trying to make is that I am not a beast (but thanks for the compliment;)). That makes it sound unattainable. A 4 or 5 watt per kg triathlete can still blow an Ironman bike with poor execution.

For those times when riding aero isn’t aero enough

Totally, I didn’t truly get this until I took on some very hilly 70.3s and couldn’t figure out why I performed so badly. You might be able to get away with it on flat courses, but I strongly recommend taking the power meter out in the road and simulating your race efforts.

Hi, can you please say where the specific numbers, e.g. 'Under 40 male qualifiers were 4.0+ w/kg with an FTP of 290+", are in Jim Vance’s book Triathlon 2.0 ? Which page and section? Thank you!

Page 43 of Triathlon 2.0 (Table 4.1).

Thank you
