I think the IIAC does have high character and that's why I was so surprised he wouldn't go up. It seems so out of place. But I think Storm4orce is probably on to something. It is probably him just being young kid and coming in with expectations of being a D3 stud (and no denying he is running great). Hopefully he'll come out of it as he grows up. Part of my post was a question, maybe he had a legitimate reason for not showing up to the podium that someone can explain. But it is hard to think of why he would not go up unless some family member just had a heart attack. It's not a big deal if you lose sometimes, just take it with grace. He looks to be friendly after races he does well in, just have to see if he keeps disappearing every time he's not happy.
