Every morning I check this thread and never am I disappointed.
First I find a great writeup by investigator on the 1:56 mile. Clear, concise and damning.
Then we get the backups of Rob's strava runs that were deleted from Joanna's account all processed and uploaded. I did my data crunching early on, but have since run out of time. Thanks to those who continue to take the time to do this.
And finally we have the announcement of the Skins reviewers, which included Ross Tucker. Don't know the other guy, but I was glad to see Mr. Tucker's name. The paces and distances will jump off the page at him, just as they did to us and the UListers.
My thoughts exactly.
Hiro, my hero! Great article on the deleted segments along I-40. One more nail in the coffin. The evidence is just overwhelming.
Then, the good news about the investigation. I concur that it will be an easy cake to slice. If they do have access to the original TomTom data it will be a slam dunk. They won't even need to look at this thread. Even if they don't have cadence or HR data, the original GPS tracks are damning in themselves. Not to belittle our work here in any way. I have doubts that an independent investigation would have been made if not for the investigation here. Give UListers credit for being onto this guy from the beginning since they know multi-day running and this one stank from the get-go. That said, I don't think they are obsessive and boisterous as the LRC crowd, except maybe some of the cross-overs :-). I'm no SKINS insider, but I'm convinced that obsession and drive to get the bottom of this matter has really been the impetus for the independent investigation, so good job, LRC. Pretty sure this guy is done with SKINS.
As far as the evidence, the screenshots, the data... Kudos to everybody who downloaded stuff, took screenshots, did data entry, did analysis, dug into his past, his charities, read his book, etc. This was a true team effort and a great example of the virtues of the anonymous nature of LRC.
Anyway, low key for a bit but awesome work, thanks for fixing timestamp-less Joanna, and that great writeup, Hiro.
PS The Joanna url is back there in the thread somewhere or possibly in the doc.
