Dear Distance Fan,
The Trailer’s OTC Elite Week got some of the jam taken out of its donut on Monday when longtime road-racing stalwart Christian Hesch admitted to the New York Times, Competitor, Runner’s World, and his grandmother’s dog Fluffy that he’d taken EPO.
Ahem. Fifty-four times.
In the running world, there have been all kinds of reactions: vilification, suspicion, denunciation, and more than anything, questions.
We here in The Trailer thought, hell, we can do something about that.
On Friday afternoon, Trailer co-founder Josh Muxen, himself a former Nike Farm Team member and competitor against Hesch, will interview The Man with the Syringe. He’ll ask a few questions, and a few from other elites that have had prize money taken away by someone under the influence.
But that’s where you come in.
We want your questions. All of them. Use dirty words (we probably will shave them down a little bit, but go ahead and use them anyway). Go uncensored, and get it all out. We’ll select the majority of the things we ask Hesch from you, the reader.
And tell your friends.
But first, the rules:
Anonymity will be respected and required, which is why you have to give yourself the name of a mythological creature, followed by your birth year (i.e. Unicorn86).
(And if you’re going to pick something as boring as a unicorn, you might as well give us a color, because someone else with your birth year is going to use it, too (i.e. MauveUnicorn86).)
Send your questions and your fictious, colored, birth-year-marked animal by Friday, 8:00 A.M. EST, to:
Your questions and Hesch’s answers will be part of a special Trailer podcast (Episode 7.1), available here and on The iTunes on Monday, October 22.
Don’t play nice; play real. We look forward to hearing from you.
