Conti GP 5000 TL failure after 300k

Recently bought a pair of Continental GP 5000 tubeless treads. They were great, except that the rear tread just split open on me.

Ive had them for about two months, maybe just over 300k on them, and the riding has all been on clean tarmac around my neighborhood. 
 

I took it into my LBS where I bought the tire, who said they spoke to a Conti rep who said "it looked like road damage" and wouldn't warranty the tread.

It looks to me like it ripped on a seam, not like something tore it open. Besides, for the price a failure of this kind and in these conditions seems like something that should be warrantee-able to me.

 

wanted to get thoughts from folks here?
