Ani Dán s pohádkovým jménem Andersen neprolomil letošní prokletí, že žádný z cyklistů 40. ročníku Závodu míru juniorů nedokázal jet ve žlutém trikotu lídra déle než jedinou etapu. V cíli německého Altenbergu ho o vůdčí pozici připravil jeho reprezentační kolega Magnus Nielsen, který do cíle přijel osamocen jako vítěz. Na třetím místě jen kousek za ním cílovou pásku protnul český jezdec Vojtěch Nipl.
