Michael Valgren Andersen (born 7 February 1992) is a Danish cyclist. He is a member of the Tinkoff-Saxo team. He turned pro in 2011 at the age of just 19 riding for the Danish continental team Cult Energy, where he won two editions of the U23 Liège-Bastogne-Liège and several other noticeable wins.

In 2014 he entered the WorldTour, when he made the big leap to Tinkoff-Saxo. He took everybody by storm, as he won the Danish national championship and Tour of Denmark after a strong overall performance on both hilly stages, fast sprinter’s stages and in the decisive individual time trial.[2]

He was named in the start list for the 2015 Tour de France.[3]
