I see that Dan Baxley is based in Clearwater, Florida -- certainly he is the connection to Kip's participation in the Gasparilla and other southwest Florida races.
I'm a fairly regular participant in Clearwater/Tampa area races, and I've never seen Baxley's name. I just did a search of local race results, and he doesn't show up, which supports the notion that he has no real running expertise.
He graduated from UMichigan (perhaps around the same time as Kip) and attended Kellogg school of management (one of the top MBA graduate business programs in the world). he posted here on KL thread #1 but has not posted since his profane tirade defending Kip. I would love to see him post again defending Mr. Litton. He has been silent since his outburst.
some have speculated that Dan Baxley might be Kip himself.
also, there are questions as to whether Ben Millefoglie (Kip's web designer/webmaster) actually is a real person, or whether it is Kip himself.
What's a bit suspicious (besides that this guy's name is in the coding for some of Kip's fabricated race websites) is that Mr. Millefoglie has a whopping 7 connections on Linkedin ( http://www.linkedin.com/pub/ben-millefoglie/7/574/6A), and a whopping 5 friends on facebook, and it appears that perhaps 1 of the 1st friends Mr. Millefoglie friended on facebook was Kip Litton.
If you look at Ben Millefoglie's facebook wall, (https://www.facebook.com/people/Ben-Millefoglie/100000268062119?sk=wall) you can see what I'm talking about....
the flow on the facebook wall is chronological. so maybe Ben joined facebook and immediately friended Kip? what do you think?:
Ben and Ken Pfaff are now friends. · Add Friend
Ben and Steve Rybo are now friends. · Add Friend
Ben and Kip Litton are now friends. · Add Friend
Ben joined Facebook."
and does anyone know if Ben actually exists?
