The new 20 for 2020: Burgos BH and SIGMA
At the beginning of the year, SIGMA has started a collaboration with the Spanish ProContinental team Burgos BH. The 20 cyclists have ambitous goals for the upcoming season and we are happy to support them.
Established in 2009, the team is currently based in Rubena / Spain and under the leadership of General Team Manager Julio Andrés Izquierdo. He says: “It is an honor for us to use SIGMA SPORT products. We can track training sessions and help cyclists achieve their personal best performances while taking advantage of the brand’s latest innovations. We hope it will be a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship.”
Training with ROX 12.0
Throughout the year, BURGOS BH will use the ROX 12.0 bike computers worldwide on more than 177 competition days and at the highest level in WorldTour events. This allows them to train and assess their performances, while the high-quality ROX 12.0 technology records and monitors all performance data of every cyclist. These data will make an important contribution to training plans throughout the cycling season.
BLAZE for increased safety
To increase the safety of riders, everyone will train with our BLAZE rear light, which can be seen at a distance of 500 m and has a brake light function. This is particularly useful when riding in groups.
Ángel Madrazo is one of the top riders of the team. The Cantabrian cyclist explains how important it is to have the support of the German company in races and in training. He says that “with ROX 12.0 bike computers it is much easier to complete the training and then learn from the trainer the status of your own current form. In this way, you will always know during the competition how to deal with your strengths and how to use them optimally to achieve excellent results.”
SIGMA SPORT relies on a solid and future-oriented partner. After a sensational year, BURGOS BH is about to enter its third year as a Professional Continental team. In 2019 Ángel Madrazo won the fifth stage of La Vuelta of Spain, and Matthew Gibson won the 13th stage of the Qinghai Lake Tour. José Fernandez won the third stage of the Trofeu Joaquim Agostinho and ended the season with a total of 3 wins, 12 podium finishes, and a total of 57 places in the top 10.
Patrick Lechner, Marketing Manager Sports at SIGMA SPORT, emphasizes: “I am very happy with this new collaboration. It will allow us to work together with a team at the highest level in Spain and help its members achieve all the goals in 2020.”
