Just a few meters later, 2016 Olympic 1500m champion Matthew Centrowitz --wearing pink racing shoes-- eased to the front on the west side of the roadway next to Hoare, surged hard, and picked up the halfway bonus in about 1:58. Centrowitz, who won on Fifth Avenue in 2012, had never gone for the prime before.
"Around 700 (meters into the race) I felt kind of good," Centrowitz told Race Results Weekly. "I thought, why not go for it? It was fun."
Thoughts? I thought it was totally bush league but then realized, "His Nike contract is going to get so reduced next year, he's probably going to feel like he needs all those dollars."
