Can someone give me a Cliff's Note version of the best of this thread? I read the first two pages and the last wo.

My questions.

1) Has he been DQd from LA yet?

2) What's most suspicious about LA other than no pictures and his past history of cheating?


(1) Not that anyone is aware of.

(2) He has run LA several times. The suspicions stem from the huge pacing differences shown by his 5K splits.
Here are Frank Meza's 5k splits from his LA Marathon performances since he was DQed from 2014 CIM:
2015: 20:47, 19:03, 20:28, 25:01, 18:34, 19:22, 21:28, 18:30 (chip time 2:52:47)
2016: no result
2017: 20:24, 20:28, 20:48, 21:13, 20:11, 20:35, 23:37, 20:25 (chip time 2:57:30)
2018: 20:32, 18:55, 22:03, 21:45, 19:39, 24:13, 19:44, 19:51 (chip time 2:56:12)
2019: 20:02, 20:17, 20:33, 21:21, 20:02, 21:23, 20:44, 19:47 (chip time 2:53:10)
This is not the type of pacing that would be expected from a record setting/chasing age grouper. Meza also has a large gun/chip differential. Meza defenders claim that LA is hilly and that explains the inconsistent pacing.

Other interesting facts: Meza is reportedly a respected medical doctor and high school coach. Gene Dykes (registered user "JustGene") chimed with on several posts and refused to pile on Mesa. Several posters claimed that JustGene was an "impost-er" but Gene confirmed his LRC handle on facebook.
