RE: WHY NO BLACK PAGE FOR WALMSLEY!!!
Here's some more data for the genius who was more impressed by Tollefon at Laverado. Tollefson did not set a course record. The top 15 men includes no one anyone has heard of outside of Tollefson. I am serious. I follow the sport closely and have not heard of anyone else in the top 15. He beat an unknown Chinese dude by 12 minutes. Most were unsponsored or have small sponsors. The course record is held by someone that no one would have heard of. It's not like its held by Kilian or Francois, who, for the record, Walmsley beat by like an hour and a half last year at states (and he's about an hour and a half better than Kilian's best WS performance as well).
Yeah, it's great he won and he is very fit and strong right now, but in no world was this anywhere close to the same performance as Walmsley. Western States is incredibly competitive because the top 10 come back next year as well as winners of other difficult races throughout the year. Anyone who follows ultra running has heard of everyone in the top 20 at states.
