A new signing for the Team Sunweb Development program, Ludwig started racing at the age of nine. With both his father and brother riding bikes, it was a natural progression for the young Dane, who joins the team excited to achieve his dreams.
“Team Sunweb really suits my personality, as a German team for me as a Dane, it is a perfect fit. There aren’t these opportunities in Denmark so this is a big chance for me.”
A natural sprinter, Ludwig clinched a Nations Cup victory in his first race as a junior, winning Gent Wevelgem in 2017. He favours and is targeting one-day races, including the cobbled classics. Open-minded, sociable, curious and a good teammate, Ludwig is willing to do all he can to secure results and is looking to improve his positioning and tactics in a world-class team.
And the 18-year-old is a little superstitious too, making sure he is sleeping with striped socks on the night before a race.
Away from cycling, Ludwig loves to hang out with his close friends, going to the movies, go-karting, and eating out.
