When interview after the race, Amber noted: “It’s unbelievable. Was a long wait. I think I used more energy sitting there [waiting for the other riders to finish than i did on the bike. I was so nervous. It was so hard to watch. I feel for Ellen but am so excited for myself. The difference today was the mental perserverence. This one was more special because of everything that has happened between 2008 and now.”
