yes agree - you can see in the way that the English riders I mentioned celebrated their achievements via their social media channel images, for quite some time after Glasgow that on a personal level the wins do mean a lot.  It's only when you step back and put the whole event in context, especially this year, when the timing and distance are so severe that some of the lustre is diminished. 

Reminds me of how the BBC used to glorify the achievemenst of one or other track and field stars, lauding their achievement as the only person to have won European, Commonwealth and Olympic titles, clearly no mean feat in itself, but as it is only a British athlete that could possibly do that it has a fairly limited field of entrants!

Anyway back to the commies always good to see the lily-white shirts pulling clear of various red, navy, green and particularly gold jersey-ed followers!
