@AaronWebstey I agree that the 2000 race is an iconic Canadian sports moment, but in a lot of ways I actually think back on the 2008 race more fondly just because of how it played out. Looked like he was dropped and going to finish 4th, then all of a sudden he surges and is going to win, then Frodeno comes out of nowhere for the win and Whitfield gets an unexpected silver. Such an amazing race.Definitely the more exciting one from a regular racing perspective as opposed to a "Holy shit we might get a medal in the summer Olympics??" one. And a far more memorable event for me - I watched it on a big old 50" tube TV that we got for cheap in our first house together. I was a year past my final ITU race and probably 2 years beyond finally accepting that I was never going to be even close to going to Beijing, and it was the first race I'd watched since hanging em up. It blew my fucking mind.
