“My main strength as a rider is my endurance, and that I’m able to read the race pretty well. So I think that’s a very good combination, especially in the one-day races.”
Michael Valgren grew up in northern Denmark, a place known for its beautiful national parks and sandy beaches. Valgren signed his first professional contract in Denmark at age 19 and has since won the Danish national championships, the Amstel Gold Race, Omloop Het Nieuwsblad, and completed six Tours de France. Did we mention he’s won two editions of the Danish stage race Danmark Rundt? And when Valgren’s not riding his bike, he’s studying up on how to make the perfect cup of coffee.
