Michael’s road in cycling began on the track over a decade ago and saw him notch up numerous national titles and international events, before being selected for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, where together with his fellow countrymen took the silver medals in the team pursuit, Denmark’s best result in this discipline since 1968.
In parallel with the track, Michael forged a strong CV on the road, landing several big wins, including a stage at the Vuelta a España. A pro since 2009, he proved with every season spent in the big league that he can sprint, time trial but also bring important input to Classics teams and sprint trains; the huge experience Mørkøv possesses and is poised to bring across to Quick-Step Floors starting from this year is underlined also by his seven Grand Tour starts, 16 Monument participations and eight consecutive presences at the World Championships.
