Human error happens,” said Chico State Head Coach Gary Towne following the decision. “It’s unfortunate. It sounds like they had measures in place to prevent this. Unfortunately all of those measures went wrong.
“The race was setting up pretty good for us, but everybody’s in the same boat so I don’t think it gives anyone a huge advantage. We will find out which teams have the best fitness, though.”
This is the main quote by the Chico coach in the article online. It was taken not in a press conference but in the moments following the coaches meeting after the failed first 10k. His runners were in position to win the race when they stopped them but he appears OK with letting them run it again to be fair to the entire field. Chico's SID was at the course and was taking in the events and getting quotes from the coaches before, during and after races.. The main quote above appears to be between races. You are saying he doesn't have class because he fails to mention the other top teams? Please expand.
