Morten first rode a speedway bike at the age of six and says his father, Kartsen, has been the biggest influence on his racing career.
2004: He made his UK debut with Coventry on 1 April 2004, scoring 5+1 points against Belle Vue in a Knock-Out Cup tie. He finished that year on 5.85 average.
2005: Continued to progress and was an integral part of the Bees’ League Championship success. He did however spend a month on the sidelines following a crash in a home league meeting on 23 May, which left him with wrist and ankle breaks. Finished on 5.03 average.
2006: His progress slowed this year and he missed most of the last third of the season because of a badly broken right tibia and fibula. He bravely returned to ride for Coventry in September, but clearly wasn’t fully fit and only rode in two matches before returning to Denmark for the winter.
2007: Now fully fit Morten began his fourth season with Coventry. He started well but his form dipped and he lost his team place in June. He then joined Eastbourne, on a month’s loan to cover for the injured Dean Barker, but remained with them until the end of the season.
2008: During the close season Morten was transferred to Swindon as a direct swap for Olly Allen. However he had to spend the season on loan as his average prevented him fitting into the Swindon team. Joined Peterborough but he was to lose his team spot in a major August reshuffle that saw Ryan Sullivan, Lukáš Dryml and Karol Zabik all return to the club. Morten joined Wolverhampton in September, as a replacement for Ales Dryml but he only rode in eight matches as he sustained a broken hand at Peterborough on 16 October.
2009: Signed by Ipswich on a month’s loan in April, following an early season injury to Leigh Lanham. At the end of his loan period Morten was snapped-up by Belle Vue as a replacement for double uppers Steve Boxall and Thomas H Jonassen. His stay with the Manchester side lasted until August when the Manchester club had a major reshuffle in order to bring Jason Crump into the side. Morten spent the remainder of the season with his parent club Swindon as a replacement for an out of form Jurica Pavlic. He quickly became a fans favourite and it was announced in December that he would start 2010 as a Robin.
2010: A season to forget as he suffered from a loss of confidence and acceptable scores regularly eluded him. He slipped down to a reserve berth in July but even this didn't help in the points scoring department. He was released by Swindon in September and replaced by their number eight, Justin Sedgmen.
2011: Joined Ipswich on a full transfer from Swindon and was showing some good form before he suffered a serious hand injury at Rye House on May 2nd. Returned to racing towards the end of June but took several weeks to regain his confidence and race fitness. Played a vital part in the last couple of months both on & off the track and is aiming to start 2012 where he left off.
2012: Sustained broken vertabrae in the first meeting of the season at Foxhall and was sidelined until the end of May. After a cautious start he slowly receovered his confidence & race fitness and was scoring consistently in the latter part of the season.
