Yes he is the true Marathon guy, but he will be relying on too many DNF's to happen, which amongst the top teams will be getting less and less I suspect.
Take the top 10 and 5 from the last few years, add in the one or two others and the placings will be quite similar!
These guys are about proven on their levels and speed and IF they finish then we know pretty much what to expect,but of course also to expect the unexpected
Should Sam and J Barreda finish you will see them knocking on the top 5 and maybe podium. Of the others why would you look away from last years top 3 - that is unless Coma is let down with his shoulder,
or the pins being stuck in the effigy of Mr. cool Cyril do their job
