On 27 August 2011, Peterborough announced that they had won the race to sign the exciting Danish youngster. A handful of Elite League clubs had been chasing the signature of the teenager – rated one of the most promising young world talents – but the 19-year-old Jensen agreed to join the Panthers after two sightseeing visits to the East of England Showground.
He was runner-up to Coventry’s Piotr Pawlicki in the European Under-19 Final at Ljubljana, Slovenia, at the beginning of July and followed that up with tenth place in the second round of the Danish Final, where he beat the three-times World Champion, Nicki Pedersen, in his second ride.
In 2010, he won the silver medal in the Danish Under-21 Final, dropping his only point to another Peterborough asset, eventual winner René Bach. Earlier, he had helped Denmark win the Under-21 World Cup at Rye House, scoring 12 points from five rides in the final.
Shortly after announcing his acquisition, Peterborough confirmed that Polish speedster Norbert Kościuch would be the rider the make way for the exciting Danish ace.
He impressed everyone at the East of England Showground during the closing weeks of the season, and looks to be a key member of their 2012 team where he starts the season in the reserve berth.
