DOUBLE WIN FOR SRAM XX IN LA BRESSE WORLD CUP

Julien Absalon (Orbea) claimed victory in La Bresse, France during the men’s Cross Country World Cup last Sunday. When a number of separate mishaps took out several favorites from the race Absalon wasted no time charging to the front and setting the pace high on the technical and aggressive descending course designed by his brother Remy. With his unrivaled SRAM XX group, RockShox SID, and Avid XX World Cup brakes beneath him, Absalon rode to his 25th career world cup victory. Second, third, and fourth went to SRAM XX riders Jaroslav Kulhavy (Specialized), Ralph Naef (Multivan Merida), and Florian Vogel (Swisspower). Naef and Vogel’s finishes secured them a spot on the Swiss Olympic Team.
