What a Run!! (Updated with pics)

I don't think I've ever seen a run like that. Guts and determination to get back on to that group of 3 in the last km. Wow!

Congrats to all of Team Canada!!

ps.. You got a nice "shout out" on CBC from Simon.
(in case you're still sleeping and missed it!)

I've heard about the shout out from Simon from a bunch of people now...I missed it though! I was sleeping. Gotta find a link of it somewhere.

Absolutely incredible, inspiring and awing to watch! Watching Colin always out front on the bike, reeling people back in, setting Simon up...amazing.
Simon's tactics and incredible sprint was truly inhuman!!

And the shout out's were pretty freaking cool too!! :-)
