Dan Baxley: "I'll check with him, also regarding timing...he was involved in a car accident some months ago, and I believe that he has only been cycling this year."
This makes no sense. If he is over confident and wants to up the price, that's one thing (a weird thing, more on that later). But then to say he's sticking with biking? Why is he trying to up the purse on a race he's not trained for? Or better yet, why is he engaging w/ SOKLR at all about Rojo's offer?
As for 5$0K, seriously? This is not the World Marathon Majors. $2k probably exceeds the prize purse for whatever race Kipster chooses. It's a more than generous prize for a not-even-sub-elite time.
