Something goes wrong in a major race, and he flops. Every single time. He's a time trialist and workout champ. Guys like Max, Joe, and Sage have competed at all levels, surfaces, and distances in head-to-head competition. Jim has yet to score a major win.

How stupid are you? The JFK 50 mile is the oldest and one of the most prestigious ultra races in the United States and he just CRUSHED the record by over 12 minutes. It wasn't his fault nobody else showed up because they are all going to be running the North Face 50 in 2 weeks.
Past competitors at JFK 50 have included

Max King 5:35
Zach Miller 5:38
Matt Flaherty 5:44
Trent Briney 5:37
Dave Riddle 5:45 5:40
Ian Sharman 5:50

People have been saying for years "just wait until the track and road guys show up and all the records will be broken". That time is now. In response, idiots like you put him down or accuse him of ped use. If that is how you truly feel about running, you should go find something else to follow and comment on.
