hey rojo, just keep in mind that the more threads and articles about trail/ultras races you have on the site, the more interest that will get from the site's visitors (which include elite runners like Desi).

and when more western elites start doing ultras, more sponsors will show up. and who follows that $$$? the kenyans!

so what I'm saying should learn more about ultras and start posting articles and results to major ultra and trail races.

THIS. Great point reed. Eventually all of the trash talk will make sense when olympic marathoners don't transition to immediate success in ultras. Can it happen? Sure. Will it be as instantaneous as some believe? Not a chance.
