Rob Young will release his GPS data, and then none of his followers will sift through it. It will show gaps where he MUST have been in an RV, but nobody will care.
He will make a statement and link to Strava/TomTom. The comments on his page will explode. "Sorry you had to deal with all this negativity mate!". "Good on you Rob!! You are my inspiration!"
The man, the myth, the legend, will never die.
It's already happening:
Mike Tucker Im not being paid. I am reading his book. Maybe I just dont get why hed cheat. The abuse he went through etc is that made up? Is he running at all? Is he raising money for very worthwhile challenges? Those are the things I maybe want to believe. Im less concerned about whether he runs x distance in x time.

RY will always be an "inspiration". I'm gutted for him...
Someone is putting up cash for the data! Now how can he resist doing this, "for the children"!

.I have faith Robert, so much so that Iâ€™ll put my money where my mouth is. For each day of verifiable detailed TomTom data you release which shows your running for this TransCon from 14th May to 7th June when the questions started (distance and duration, location, elevation, time of day plus heart rate or cadence â€“ matching those TomTom screenshots) I will donate Â£20 to Dreams Come True Charity. That should be about Â£500 in total. I call on your Marathonmanuk supporters to pledge something themselves â€“ even just 20p per day â€“ because if everyone who liked your status gave, you would smash your Â£200,000 fundraising target. Just two conditions to silence all the doubters and haters: the data has to be released where it can be scrutinised publicly such as through your Strava account, and within 24 hours of now."
