Mark Padun: “I never felt so good”

"It’s a dream. It’s really really incredible. I still felt yesterday’s victory was unbelievable, it left me with so much stress and adrenaline. I tried to forget what I did and to focus on today. The plan was to go in the breakaway and maybe help Jack Haig for the GC battle on the final climb. I figured why not go for the KOM points too. We had more than 2 minutes for the last climb and everything went so easy for me. I never felt so easy on the bike in such a race. Physically, it’s hard but mentally I never felt so good. I’m a young rider. I had a lot of problems with my weight in the past. I struggled after an altitude camp and then I found great legs."
