The BH-Coloma Team pair formed by David Valero and Pablo Rodriguez will be one of the favorites for the podium of the Absa Cape Epic 2023 that starts next Sunday. The team is already in South Africa and there we have been able to see for the first time the aesthetics they will wear for this special race.

Cape Epic Special Edition for the BH Lynx Race and BH-Coloma Team kits

Although it will be the first time in the Cape Epic for Pablo Rodriguez and the second for David Valero, the truth is that we are talking about one of the strongest pairs of the grid and the only one in which is the number 1 of the current UCI ranking. So the organization already has them in their particular list of favorites and with that condition they will take the start on March 19th.

Final adjustments before setting off for the first ride in Cape Town

The team and sponsors have gone all out for such a special race and the BH-Coloma Team will be wearing a very special look in South Africa. Both the kits and the mountain bikes have been customized with colors and motifs inspired by the African savannah and almost every component can be considered as a special edition.

Here we leave all the images in detail and a little further down the complete setup with which they will be competing.


The Gobik jersey and bib shorts have been customized with the same colors and animal print as the frame.

David Valero adjusts the hydration backpack with which they will race. The BH Lynx only has room for one bottle and the team, like many others, looks set to ride with a hydration pack on its back.
The front part of the frame has a camouflage look in dark green tones.
The Gemini Pröpus handlebar has been customized with the same camouflage look as the front of the frame.
The rear of the frame has been inspired by the colors and patterns of the African savannah where the Cape Epic 2023 takes place. This is the BH Lynx of Pablo Rodriguez, who will compete with the number 4-2.

DUKE hubs and Shimano XTR cassette 10-51
Detail of frame and handlebars with the same camouflage look
The frame of the BH Lynx Race Evo Carbon supports a large water bottle, but in a stage race where the heat and the distance between refreshment posts can be excessive, it is necessary to carry an extra hydration reservoir.
David Valero's bike, inside, is easily recognizable by the third triangle that makes the frame in size XL above the down tube.
