This page is about the team Burgos-BH 2022, I will keep updating it during the season as I gather more information while watching the team racing the Vuelta a Espana.
Burgos-BH is a UCI Professional Continental team founded in 2006 and based in Spain.

As the co-sponsor name indicates, the team is racing on BH road bikes.
The team Burgos-BH has access to three BH bike models: the Aerolight for fast stages and rolling hills, the Ultralight for the mountain stages, and the BH Aero TT for Time-Trial stages. The names say it all.
In case you never heard about BH, it is a Spanish bicycle company that used to be very famous in Europe in the 1980s for its BMX.
Nowadays, BH bicycles are still popular in Spain but there are no more BMX on their catalog.
FSA 11-speed groupset
The BH bikes of the team Burgos-BH are super interesting as they are assembled with the FSA K-Force WE 11-speeds electronic groupset.
That is a rare sight to see pro cyclists racing with a different group that the usual big three which are Shimano, Campagnolo, and Sram.
The complete components are from the FSA catalog, the rear and front derailleurs, the shifters, the disc brakes, the crankset, and the chain.
But also the handlebars, stem, and seat post are from FSA.
The Vision wheels, which are also an FSA brand, are rolling on Veloflex tires.
The riders’ contact points with the bike are the Prologo saddles and the Xpedo pedals.
The Burgos -BH team relies on Sigma GPS cycling computer for accurate live power data feeds while training and racing.
To add to this rare bike setup, the bottle cages are Made in Italy by a company called RaceOne.
It is fun to see some teams have the gut to go out racing with bikes that are different than the general trend.
It shows that alternatives exist and they are reliable enough to be used by professional teams.
The team Burgos-BH wears Spiuk helmets and sunglasses, Finisseur cycling jerseys, bib-shorts, Prologo gloves, and socks.
BOL Jetse, CABEDO Óscar, DÍAZ José Manuel, EZQUERRA Jesús, MADRAZO Ángel, NAVARRO Daniel, OKAMIKA Ander, and PEÑALVER Manuel are racing La Vuelta a Espana 2022.
