They didn’t post the allocations. M55-59 4 spots, no roll down. M50-54 8 spots rolled down to 27th! A 12:13 time took it.

M50-54 and M35-39 both originally had 7 slots; there were no finishers in M75-79, so by virtue of one more person in the AG, that slot got reallocated to M50-54. My husband was 8th in M35-39. We were listening to that M50-54 slot roll endlessly and breaking inside a little bit. Thankfully, there ended up being one rolldown within M35-39, so happy ending to that little story over here!

Imagine being, say, 15th and having given your all for KQ for 7 months you decided not to hang around after assuming the worst.....

I can't and I won't because I always attend roll-down no matter where I finished. Damned be the fool who gives up because 99% of the time one would be justified for not attending but then loses out that 1% of the time it wouldn't. Of course, depending on how badly one actually wants it...

I did not take mine, one person had already KQ and I talked to a guy at the finish that said he was not taking his, think he was in 6th or 7th. So m40-44 should have rolled 3 deep to 12th, unless those guys did not take them either.

Any word on the women's side? F45-49 and F50-54? Any rolldown? Seems like the top several already had Kona slots....

Yes, but the disappointment of that guy who got 15th, would be cancelled out and then some, by the guy that got 27th and got the slot. His joy and excitement would be exponentially larger than the others grief...

Good point and part of the magic. I saw 3 slots at IM UK in M45-49 roll to 13th. The guy who got it walked up on stage, shook Paul Kaye’s hand and exited backstage to sign up. This should have taken about a minute, but took at least 5 as he was crying his eyes out throughout.

You could even make him out in the queue backstage, he was the guy whose shoulders were moving up and down as he was still bawling. Fantastic.

these are the best. I love going to the roll down just for that reason.

I was there-I transferred Texas to Wisconsin because life has gotten in the way and my training isn't where I felt it should be...when the rolls started my buddy laughed at me and said you could have used it as a training day and punched a ticket...a hard training day but yup, coulda/woulda...I got up, walked around a bit, said a few choice words to myself, and had a beer at lunch...

Top 15 in M40-44 where overall faster then m35-39, thought this got easier to get to Kona when you got older...... Would be interested to hear how far m35-39 rolled to.

Assuming no roll down it looks like you have to be about 5 minutes faster in the 35-39 vs. 40-44 to snag the last KQ.

More the depth of field, you have much tighter times in m40-44 then you have in 35-39. Yes I know this might be different next week at a different race, but if anything its looking like there is def no drop off in competition by aging up and if anything its more competitive then 35-39.

Very sure. At one point Mike Reilly asked who is here in the M50-54 and about 3-4 people stood up, so he kept reading names until a German guy in 27th place took it.
