Absolute Absalon BMC

MTB Pro Team

2020 signifies a decade of BMC presence at 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 consecutive years. With Julien Absalon, one of the key riders over the last decade, it feels right to start this new decade racing alongside the Absolute Absalon name.

Absolute Absalon brings two talented riders to the table, adding their impressive wealth of knowledge and experiences. Pair this with two 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 and beyond.

2020 sees the team racing aboard the Fourstroke in both the U23 and Elite fields, with a major target of having a rider in the 2021 Olympic Games.
