Michael Valgren


Østerild, Danmark

Date of birth

7 February 1992


Danish, English



Michael Valgren grew up in Østerild, on the west coast of Denmark. When he was a kid, he would race between towns by the North Sea, pretending that he was in the Tour de France. Michael now lives in Monaco with his wife and two young kids, but his favorite road is still the stretch through the dunes between the fishing villages of Klitmøller and Hanstholm, where he got started.

The races he loves most are the classics. Michael shines on the cobbles and on short, punchy climbs. He has already won Omloop Het Nieuwsblad and the Amstel Gold Race.

Michael was injured in a crash in 2022. It took time and a lot of hard work for him to get back to form, so we are thrilled to have him back racing with us.
