Windy bests don't do him much good as far as achieving qualifying standards is concerned. Anyway, if you look at US sprinters, a lot of them run their fastest times wind- or altitude-aided. Obviously, if these factors help you, it means you will be more likely to run faster at altitude or with strong headwind, so even you only get 1 or 2 such races per season, the chances are pretty good that you will run your SB in one of them.
