28/08/2014 - Newsletter Focus XC Team for Annefleur .

" Dear Annefleur "Fleur",
thank you very much for your time spending with all of us. You´ve brought a lot of vitality and heart´s blood into our team and the cycling sport. With all your love of sport you´ll always remain in our hearts.
On the race day in Meribel you made the sun shine all day long, every flower by the wayside of the track flourished so that you could watch the race from every angle.
You, "Fleur", didn´t miss to be with every single participant that day: with "your flower" attached to every number you could experience everyone giving his/her best on that special day, precisely for you.
Every time we think of you, you give us hope and so much strength - thank you for that! You´ll always be with us, we know.
"It´s good for me"- one of your most replied answers to our questions. We do hope from the bottom of our hearts that it is like this, now.
Because of you, the entire cycling family moved closer together, merged and hold a moment of silence prior to each race. Many people, hardly knowing each other, put their arms around each other at the thought of you. What a wonderful experience for us, that day.
Your "beloved" Focus XC Team"

The whole Mountainbike Family was proud to stay on the start line for "Fleur". The organizer do the heartiest for each rider with
nice flowers on the numbers. Everybody feels that Meribel were woleheartedly for all riders and for "Fleur".

13/08/2014 - Absalon set to live up to his reputation.

Vainqueur à Pietermaritzburg (Afrique du Sud) en ouverture puis à Cairns (Australie) et Albstadt (Allemagne), Julien Absalon est l’indiscutable Patron de la Coupe du Monde depuis le début de cette saison.

Seul athlète de l’histoire à avoir remporté 29 victoires d’étape, le Français devrait soulever une sixième fois le trophée du classement général de la Coupe du Monde lors de la manche finale à Méribel. Sa mission pour cela : terminer dans le Top 30 en cas de nouveau succès de Nino Schurter, son grand rival. Ce devrait être une formalité.

Après avoir triomphé en 2003 puis de 2006 à 2009, le pilote BMC a rendez-vous avec le public français pour célébrer une nouvelle page de sa légende. Deux semaines avant les Championnats du Monde d’Hafjell (Norvège) où il rêve de retrouver le titre Mondial, 7 ans après son dernier sacre, Absalon s’apprête à vivre un moment unique dans une carrière majuscule : triompher devant les siens !
