This is going to be insane to follow. 2017 #UTMB Men's Preview:

I admittedly feel awkward in writing an American-centric section in a UTMB preview, as we rarely include country-specific sections outside of world-championship events. Here, I do so for a few reasons. First, regardless of how the American men fair at this year’s UTMB, it’s quite likely the strongest assembly of American ultrarunners anywhere this year, i.e., you could consider it the de facto American championship… that just happens to be the in the Alps. Second, with Luis Alberto Hernando out and Jason Schlarb in, ITRA rankings show six Americans in the top-11 spots. (Notably, with three of the top-11 spots and four runners already listed above, Spain would be the next logical candidate for its own section, but, well, I’ve already listed four of the five runners ranked in ITRA’s top 20.)
