Absalon wins again

Favorite will be national champion for seventh consecutive year

In the town of Oz-en-Oisans, Julien Absalon (Orbea) won his seventh consecutive national title in the cross country.

Absalon set his own pace from the start and finished over four minutes ahead of Jean-Christophe Peraud (Massi), who ended up second. Absalon had already said he aimed to keep his national jersey for another year.

"This is an important race, because it's always an honour to wear your country's jersey. I was very pleased with this weekend's win, as it's the first in the second part of the season."

Cédric Ravanel (LaPierre International) won a bronze medal, despite a heavy fall and a few technical problems during the race.
