She calls herself the bubbly Dane. It’s a name no one can dispute — even her competitors, who might see Michelle flash her wide grin as she overtakes them in a race. “Keep smiling” is the motto by which she lives her life, and she attributes her stay-positive attitude to her late brother, Mark, who was and continues to be her inspiration. Michelle goes where the races take her, but Hawaii will always hold a special place in her heart; some of the best finishes of her career have taken place at the IM World Championship in Kona, Hawaii.
