Absolute Absalon BMC

MTB Pro Team

Team Absolute Absalon-BMC is ready to dominate the course.

2021 marks more than ten years of BMC presence at the pinnacle of MTB racing, having won World Championships, World Cups, European and national titles, as well as being ranked the top UCI MTB World Cup team for several consecutive years. The new decade sees current XCO World Champion and all-round cycling icon, Pauline Ferrand-Prevot join forces with the Absolute Absalon-BMC team, boosting an already awe-inspiring roster of athletes.

Absolute Absalon-BMC team principal and owner, Julien Absalon feels confident to have his team continue climbing the podiums this season. While Pauline Ferrand-Prevot secures its presence at the very peak of Women’s XCO, the whole team - including Titouan Carod, Filippo Colombo and Mathis Azzaro - is starting the new season on the back of a spectacular 2020. This decade of XCO racing promises a continued run of impressive results from Team Absolute Absalon-BMC.

2021 sees the team racing aboard the double World Title winning Fourstroke and the all-new hardtail Twostroke, in both the U23 and Elite fields, with a major target of having riders in the Olympic Games and bringing home Gold.
