After this controversy in 2020, I decided to do some digging into his races. I found a lot of suspicious stuff that shows he was probably cutting courses (not just this 50 miler) starting in 2017. I made a document summarizing my notes and thoughts. He has since deleted all of the Strava posts I reference (which is suspicious) but a lot of my points still stand.
Here is a summary:
-He consistently doesn't upload Strava races for his "incredible" results. In those posts he owuld say that his watch broke that day even though he would upload runs the day before and the day after. This happened at EVERY race
-His pacing for the Bethel Boogie 50 milers are all over the pace (up and down), which you wouldn't expect in record runs. You could chalk this up to pit stops or some segments being harder, but I think it is suspicious. Especially if you look pack at the results from 2016. In 2016, he gradually and consistently slows down like you would expect in a normal ultra
-In one of his marathons, I found that his photo was missing from the race photos during a section that could be cut
-Back when he was in Raleigh he would post daily runs from 10-30 miles all at 5:40-6:15/mi. I even remember him posting a solo run that would have broken the Masters 50k WR. This seems to indicate data manipulation.
LRC note. A visitor reporter this post as being factually incorrect. We don't know if it's true or not but will share their message, "That's absurd. I don't know about any of the other races, but the Boogie had course marshals both on the ground and on bikes and as somebody in the lead he would have been under the microscope"
