Mads Pedersen (born 18 December 1995) is a Danish professional racing cyclist who currently rides for UCI WorldTeam Trek–Segafredo. In September 2019, he won the men's road race at the 2019 UCI Road World Championships in Yorkshire, England, and became the first Danish cyclist to win the men's World Championship road race title.
In 2013, Pedersen won the Paris–Roubaix Juniors and went on to claim the silver medal in the World Championships junior road race. Pedersen won Ghent–Wevelgem U23, the U23 Tour of Norway, and a stage of the Tour de l'Avenir prior to turning professional.
In his neo-pro season, he was named in the start list for the 2017 Giro d'Italia. He also become national champion of Denmark, and took overall victory in the Tour du Poitou Charentes after winning the time trial. In September 2017, Pedersen took overall victory at the Danmark Rundt.
In April 2018, he finished in second place in the Tour of Flanders following a spirited break away. Pedersen attacked ahead of the Koppenberg with just over 50 kilometres (31 miles) remaining, and was joined by Dylan van Baarle (Team Sky) and Sebastian Langeveld (EF Education First–Drapac p/b Cannondale). Eventual winner Niki Terpstra (Quick-Step Floors) caught and passed Pedersen on the final ascent of the Oude Kwaremont and rode to victory, but Pedersen was strong enough to hold off world champion Peter Sagan (Bora–Hansgrohe) and the chasing peloton to become the youngest podium finisher in 40 years.
On 29 September 2019, Pedersen won the World Road Race Championship in a rain-soaked race, in and around Harrogate, in Yorkshire, England. He is the first Danish cyclist to win a men's world championship road race title.
