I haven't been on LRC for a few months, so I totally missed this fiasco. It really bums me out, because it seems like it was pretty juicy. And since this is now nearly 500 pages, it is very difficult for me to get up to speed. Here is what I gathered from about 10 minutes of clicking around:
-RY is some British ultra runner dude.
-RY sets out to break the record for fastest run across the US.
-Random LRC guy from Kansas decides to go run a few miles with him, but when he arrives, RY is nowhere to be found. Just an RV driving slowly. LRC guy takes some videos and posts it to LRC, hypothesizing that RY isn't truly running the entire thing.
-LRC sleuths kick into high gear, discovering that some of RY's alleged accomplishments are questionable, including the # of races he has run, as well as some PRs.
-LRC sleuths also analyze some of the GPS tracking data and discover that RY apparently ran a few stretches at improbably fast paces.
-RY and his team catch wind of this and vehemently deny any cheating, even inviting some outsiders (like Laz from Barkleys) to come observe.
-UK elite marathoner Steve Way chimes in to say that this dude seems like a cheater.
-RY drops out at some point due to a foot injury.
-Due to intense pressure, RY releases some Strava data from his runs, but his critics say they seem edited, and they do not include cadence data (and therefore he could have been just sitting in the RV during the "runs."
So help me out. What did I get wrong? Did I miss anything juicy, or is this about it?
