The Trackbot is a bit ridiculous (and probably more irritating than Ventolin) but I disagree that Bekele had 26:05 in him.
That 10000 WR was a very good day for Bekele and I don't believe solo for 5000 cost him much.
Bekele's 10000km 1000km-splits ranged from 2:32 to 2:42. Part of the problem with being the fastest runner is that there are no pacemakers for you. I think he could have run significantly faster official times at all distances.
