Not only does 2020 see BMC Racing merge with Absolute Absalon but it also signifies a decade of BMC presence in the pinnacle of MTB racing. Since 2010 BMC has won World Championships, World Cups, European and National titles as well as being ranked the top UCI MTB World Cup team for five years on the bounce. With Julien Absalon being one of the key riders over the last decade, it feels right to start this new decade racing under the Absolute Absalon name. Absolute Absalon does not only bring two talented riders, but also the wealth of knowledge and experience that Julien himself provides. Pair this with two additional and equally talented riders from the BMC Racing team and we have the key building blocks for a team that will continue its success at the highest level. 2020 will see the team, Absolute Absalon – BMC, racing aboard the Fourstroke in both the U23 and Elite fields, with a major target of having a rider in the Tokyo 2020 games.
