Fact or Friction?

Just got word from a source close to the source.

His words:
This might or might not influence your decision to support events in the future by this race management staff. Most of us were informed late Wednesday night via e-mail about the race cancellation; however the elite running field was notified Wednesday morning to cancel their trips to the race.

er, yeah, nice to know that the race staff went into the Wednesday evening meeting with an "open mind."

Roger, please tell the world how this makes me "feel."

Thank you Roger.

Oh yeah, you didn't know that? They called me and told me Tuesday night. I wasn't even running, I was just going to pump some flesh and sign a book or thousand.

Better luck next year.

I asked if this was true on Tony Krupicka's blog, don't know if he'll answer, but he is certainly one of the elites

Yeah, if Tony is "Elite" why didn't he snag one of those "for the good of the race" slots like I did? Answer me that.

So, according to Anton (in response to Chase's question) this is fiction. At least, he did not get a call. maybe others did, who knows...

In any case, I shall continue to believe they botched the whole deal.

Again, Western States doesn not consider Anton elite. Of course he is, but he hasn't proved anything on their course.... yeah right, Greg, Drop and give me 20!
