A tour of an Olympian's hometown


Groupe Scolaire Route d'Arches wanted to show their Olympic Dreams partner school where Julien Absalon grew up - so they filmed a tour of Raon aux Bois, and the people they met along the way.

Julien Absalon is an Olympic gold medallist mountain biker who attended the school Groupe Scolaire Route d'Arches in the French village of Raon aux Bois, which is twinned with Mill View Primary in Chester, UK.

BBC World Class in partnership with the British Council have linked up schools in the UK with schools previously attended by the BBC's World Olympic Dreams athletes. Read more about the School Teams here.
