remember mosop is running dubai next week, so he is running 2 marathons 80 days apart.

i pick lucas rotich in his debut due to begginners luck.

Isn't that what caused him to sit out most of 2011 (after Rotterdam)? Must have a smart manager/coach. ;)

In my opinion, the men to watch are Markos Geneti and Gebre Gebremariam. When in good health and in shape, both are very dangerous. If Mosop regains his 2011 form which enabled him to run 2:03 and break 25k and 30k WRs on the track, then he will win no doubt. But the weather conditions will be the ultimate decider on who wins.

Right, because the weather is different for everyone of them.

If you don't think different athletes react to weather in different ways, you are an idiot.

Nutella1 should recall what happened in 2012. If the weather conditions were ideal, Wesley Korir would have finished outside the top four. G. Mutai, Gebre Mariam, Levy Matebo, Wilson Chebet and maybe Mathew Kisorio would have finished ahead of him. But as it turns out, none of them handled the horrible conditions better than him(Korir). So yes, weather affects everyone differently. Also remember David Rudisha, who has dominated 800m for at least three years now, has been beaten twice in similar weather conditions(cold/or rainy).

I wonder if Ryan Hall will try leading most of it again or if he will sit back this time

Ryan Hall always does better when he runs aggressively from the front. If in shape and healthy, there should be no reason for him to change that.

Has Hall ever tried anything different when he was in good shape? The guy certainly does not lack confidence and always pushes the pace when he is ready to roll. This does not mean that he couldn't benefit from letting some other people do the work early in the race.
