Formed in June 09, Here Come the Belgians is a non-elite anti-team celebrating all things cross, cobbled and Belgian.
Seeking a different experience to the traditional cycling club, its aim is to harness the energy of a vibrant internet cycling community with grass roots racing and riding based around Cyclocross and Spring Classics. There is no race programme in the style of a racing team, more a collection of individual experiences through rides and racing, in whatever location a member may be, that all can share in and contribute toward.

Boggart Hole

Fantastic showing from HCtB yesterday with 5 Belgians lining up on the start line. Plus 3 mini Belgians racing in the under 12's (we need shirts for these budding stars). As we waited for the off it was pleasing to hear people talking about us - who are they? were have they come from? and were did they get the name?? Well at least we are getting people talking!! Just wait until we start doing a full on Columbia High Road style team strategy!

Alan top Belgian home great ride after a rushed morning! Rich best turned out Belgian (it's those shoes).

Top marks to the organisers for a well run event and a great course giving something of everything and really maximising what was on offer. Although their ears might have burnt once or twice on the tarmac climb out of the woods, short sharp climb 90 degree turn onto tarmac it was the only time my griffos lost traction !!!!

Next race for me will be the Lakes RC at Brockhole visitor centre which should be a fantastic course if the surroundings are anything to go by. Lets hope for another good turn out for HCtB and hopefully we have all got over the various levels of cold and flu!!
