ABOUT Søren Kragh Andersen

In his younger days Andersen raced for hours on his bike, playing games with his brother and friends and still, years later, nothing much has changed. Playing with his bike is still his addiction, he loves racing and enjoys training. “Cycling is my lifestyle. The freedom of cycling and being at one with nature makes me feel happy, I can’t imagine living without a bike.”

Søren became a professional cyclist in 2013 and joined Team Sunweb in 2016. This 22-year-old Danish talent is an all-rounder, who prefers difficult races with some decisive short climbs like Strade Bianche and the Tour of Flanders. “I see myself as a small classic guy”.

Last year, Andersen was one of the great talents in the peloton competing with the best riders in WorldTour races. Alongside supporting team leaders deep into the finale, he won a stage at the Tour of Oman and achieved good results in Tirreno-Adriatico, Ster ZLM Tour, the Vuelta a España and Paris-Tours. Alongside this, he was part of the team that rode to the team time trial victory at the World Championships.

Andersen is a strong, smart rider who’s eager to focus on the details to become a better cyclist. “After a few years racing at a professional level, I have started to understand more and more. I have a better knowledge of the reasons why specific training forms and optimal nutrition are needed – these explanations help me to believe in the things I do. I feel like I’m getting better and smarter every year and with increasing experience and age, I’m sure I’m getting closer to a big victory.”
