Peterborough star Michael Jepsen Jensen was crowned World U21 Champion after a closely-fought final round in Argentina.

Jepsen Jensen was pushed all the way by reigning champion Maciej Janowski, who spent the 2012 Elite League season with King's Lynn on loan from Swindon.

Janowski scored a 15-point maximum at Bahia Blanca, and that left the Dane needing second place from the final race of the competition to secure the title.

Jepsen Jensen duly finished behind fellow countryman Mikkel B Jensen to win the seven-round series by just a single point, adding to his victory as a Wild Card in the Nordic Grand Prix and his part in Denmark's World Cup triumph.

Mikkel Michelsen claimed fourth place on the night with 11 points and fourth in the championship on 59. Nicklas Porsing scored seven to move up to fifth overall on 50, meaning Denmark's juniors occupy four of the top five places.
