Absalon wins French Cup round22. June 2015, Lons le Saunier, France — MTB Team
Julien Absalon won his first round of the French Cup this season in Lons le Saunier. After a long duel with Maxime Marotte, the World Champion placed a decisive attack in the last lap to win solo.
Beaten at the first two rounds of the 2015 French Cup, Julien Absalon was keen to win in Lons le Saunier. The race quickly went down to a duel between the World Champion and with Maxime Marotte. Aboard his new Teamelite (equipped with the softest Xcell of the Micro Travel Technology), Julien had to wait until the final lap and the steepest climb of the course “l’Alpe d’Huez” to get rid of his last opponent.
Julien Absalon and his team mates of the BMC MTB Racing Team will take part to the BMC Racing Cup in Yverdon les Bains next weekend.
