This is a weird one, but one I'll stand by.
Case Clinger is the purest racer I've seen. In any sort of national race where tactics come into play, that dude has the close to beat anybody. I think if they were in a tactical 5k, Clinger could change gears faster than Hunter. People will say that Hunter will easily win in an overall fast race, but I think Clinger has a strength that many don't know about. It would be tighter than ppl think.
Just my two cents, from a guy that's seen a lot of Casey's races.
