BH Bikes news

For another year running, BH Bikes will feature in professional cycling with the Arkéa-Samsic team.

2019 will be a year in which BH bikes will fly on all the terrains that form part of the professional road cycling calendar.
Their partnership with the Arkéa–Samsic team guarantees that the BH Ultralight EVO and BH G7 PRO will be seen in any type of final.
They already achieved this in 2018 in the mountain stages with Warren Barguil, who is on the team again this season. Now they will also do so in the quickest finishes, the most furious sprints, the tightest stages. The addition of the German cyclist Andre Greipel represents a big leap in quality for the Arkéa-Samsic team, and he will also enter the fight for the numerous victories up for grabs in key sprints.
This week, the official presentation of the team was held with more than 700 guests. The elegant design of the jersey they will wear in 2019, which is mostly white and features BH, was also unveiled. The Continental Pro category team has the experience to challenge in the best races of the international calendar, with their invitation to the Paris-Nice race, one of the most important stage races of the year, having already been confirmed.

The main aim of the team will be to repeat their performance in the Tour de France and take a leading role in cycling’s top race. The Arkéa–Samsic team has a long history in French road cycling, beginning in 1994. In 2019, the team will be made up of 21 cyclists. They are mostly French cyclists, with 2 new additions (Andre Greipel and another German cyclist, Robert Wagner), as well as the arrival of 1 new young professional, Alan Riou.

The responsibility for shining in key moments of the year will be shared by Warren Barguil and Andre Greipel. The French cyclist came 2nd in the mountains classification of the last Tour de France and was the winner of two stages, both in the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. He is scheduled to make his debut in the Challenge Mallorca. He is a born stage hunter and a fighter who can always be seen in the most challenging stages.

Andre Greipel opens a world of possibilities for the Arkéa-Samsic team. With him the team will take on a new role in stages that were previously unimportant to them. The arrival of the German will help boost motivation and provide a new tactical focus for the Arkéa-Samsic team. In 2018, he achieved 9 wins and 30 top-ten finishes in stages and races all over the world. Last year, he focused on winning “paired” stages. He managed to win two stages in each of the following races: the Santos Tour Down Under, the 4 Jours de Dunkerque, the Baloise Belgium Tour and the Ovo Energy Tour of Britain. He is scheduled to make his debut in the Tropicale Amissa Bongo race in Gabon.

As usual, the Arkéa–Samsic team has already met for their first practice session to run in the new material and rack up the first kilometres of the year. This session was held in Calpe, Spain, where the cyclists met their new team-mates and saw their new colours for the first time. The BH Ultralight EVO and BH G7 Pro are ready for another intense year at the top of world cycling.
