    Absolute master class in pacing Steve Way. Great effort to pick them off towards the end. Was watching the stream and you looked the most happy of the gold medalists when you finished! That is one tough ultra. Will you go back next year for the Back to Back?... you have to do it both ways to be a true Comrade apparently!
