XC World Champion Jordan Sarrou Off Absolute Absalon in 2021

Jordan Sarrou has announced that he'll be moving on from the Absolute Absalon team and BMC for 2021.

bigquotesTwo years ago with @julien_absalon we made a bet to build something together to reach the highest level, we have achieved it. Very proud to have been able to share these magical moments within the @absoluteabsalon_bmc team.

On contract until the end of the year, I will be able to tell you more from January 2021. Thank you to all the staff who believed in me. I wish you all a Happy New Year.
Jordan Sarrou

The announcement comes just days after his World Champion counterpart in the women's field, Pauline Ferrand Prevot, announced that she'll be parting ways with Canyon for 2021.

The Canyon press release hints at Ferrand Prevot moving "closer to the centre of her life, her family" so it looks to us like the Absolute Absalon team could be freeing up space for her ahead of the 2021 season. Of course, that is all just speculation at this point and we look forward to seeing where the French riders land in 2021.

 @prevail: Specialized it is, it is not the shock which is vertical, but it's water bottle.
He lives 5km away from me, and Saturday he rode in front of me with his World champ jersey and his new bike, a dark shiny red Specialized ????
