Michael Mørkøv – Olympic Champion


The palmarès websites tell us that the first title Michael Mørkøv won was the Danish Junior Points Race in 2003, since then the titles have come think and fast at National, European and World level on track and road.

And now he’s added the title he’s coveted for years, the Olympic Madison.

In what many pundits describe as the best Madison they’ve ever witnessed, Michael and the man with whom he won the world title in the discipline, Lasse Norman Hansen, beat the cream of the world’s track riders to the top of the podium. 

We caught up with the man after the Tour of Denmark, a race he went straight into after his return from Japan.
