Windham World Cup 2010: Julien Absalon

VIDEO: Two-time Olympian Julien Absalon had some bad luck at the Windham World Cup race, which meant he was out of contention for the overall series title for 2010.

Even the man with 17 World Cup wins, five World Cup overall titles, two Olympic gold medals and four world MTB championships isn’t immune to a race-complicating flat tire. Julien Absalon’s run at a fifth-consecutive overall World Cup victory was ended Saturday by a flat tire at Windham, New York.
