Yea, I saw that.  Pretty lame that the organizers are now concerned they might have to pay the $100k that they promised if someone won 10 of those events, so they are now offering a bonus to someone to beat him.  It'll be interesting to see if their price for defeating him rises as his record of wins escalates.


Guess there's a reason to buy insurance.

Just did a web search.  It would appear that the organizers found their man to defeat Hobie.


Too bad.

He had to drop out of this one, but if the numbers in the WSJ article are right, he only has to win 8 of the remaining 23 races to get the $100k prize.  Given that his goal was supposedly to sweep the series, though, this might put a damper on his determination.


All I know is the dude lunged a mile in under 25 minutes.  He *lunged* for a mile.  Dear lord.
