Mathias Norsgaard

A powerhouse with lots to show yet

GREAT LEGS, BIG HEART. Mathias Norsgaard started to show in 2021 -following a serious injury which overshadowed most of his 2020 season- not only the talents that made him earn the confidence of the Movistar Team just over two years ago to take the WorldTour leap, but also courage, commitment and huge sporting and personal values. He made the most of every single opportunity he had: was 2nd at a tough breakaway into a stage of the Benelux Tour, 3rd in the Danish road race Championships, 4th in the ITT event and 5th in the Volta a Portugal prologue, other than spending long stretches into the breakaway at Ordizia, Getxo or three of the 2021 Monument classics: Milano-Sanremo, Ronde van Vlaanderen and Paris-Roubaix. His work was even more valuable as he supported team success in Ventoux and Occitanie, a labour he’ll proudly continue to carry out, hopefully in even bigger scenarios, already this 2022 season.

POWERFUL TALENT. At 2m02, Mathias Norsgaard is the tallest rider of the 200+ athletes who have been part of the Abarca Sports organisation in more than 40 years, as well as only the second man from his country to don the Telefónica-backed squad’s jersey -the first one being Gert Frank, in 1980-. A time trialist and a pure rouleur, following the Danish canons, he took the bronze medal in the 2018 U23 ITT World Championships -also finishing 4th in Yorkshire (2019)-, and also showed his excellent power with a long, successful break on stage one of the 2019 Tour de l’Avenir, ahead of the biggest world talents.

CYCLING AS A FAMILY. His is one of very few cases when a brother and a sister have been able to make it up to the same WorldTour outfit: Mathias, and Emma Norsgaard, a strong sprinter and rouleur, whose results in 2021 have made become of the leaders of the Movistar Team. Emma’s husband is, coincidentally, a world-class athlete and a good friend of Mathias: Mikkel Bjerg, a three-time U23 ITT world champion, who usually trains with Norsgaard as the three spend the cycling season in Girona or in the Andorra mountains nearby.
