Combining track and road throughout his career so far, Frederik makes the full switch to becoming a professional “roadie” with the team in 2022. Successful on the boards, Frederik was part of the Olympic medal winning Danish Team Pursuit teams at both Rio in 2016 and Tokyo in 2021.

“The Olympics were a bit bittersweet in Tokyo. I enjoyed the Olympics a lot better in Rio where we got a bronze but the ones in Tokyo sucked, even with that silver medal, because we were all really committed and fully invested in trying to get that gold.”

Clearly a driven and highly motivated individual, the well-spoken Frederik fell in love with the sport in the same way as a lot of people: by watching the Tour de France with his dad before going along to attend a session at the local bike club. Hooked from there, Frederik’s passion for the sport only increased as the years progressed, although he jokes that there might a more masochistic reason behind it all:

“I think I really like the extreme part of it, the way you suffer. If you have to get somewhere, it’s all or nothing. ’It turns me on’ might be a weird way to say it but to get somewhere in the sport you really have to fully commit.”

Joining some familiar faces with former teammates Andreas [Leknessund] and Jonas [Iversby Hvideberg], plus friend Casper [Pedersen], Frederik is ready to “get stuck into road racing with the team, learn from those around him and make the next steps.”

When he’s not competing all over the world, you can find Frederik taking his mind off cycling by playing lots of different sports, with table tennis a particular favourite of his recently.
