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.

Iljo Keisse would drink...well, that bloody picture is unsharp, so we will never know.

BTW, all pictures were taken with a 1961 Leica M3 on silverbased b/w film. I do not need no auto focus to mess up a picture, see above. That should be enough pictures on the six days, I'll take the rest of the week off from printing.


  1. My money is with the guy on the derny. That's if he doesn't end up on a gurney before the end of the night........

  2. Iljo Keisse would drink ... Cecemel, which is chocolate milk. And the guy on the derny, well, let's just say he is not your average guy on a derny. He is a legend in his own right, he is Joop Zijlaard, a Dutch pacemaker since 1970, who has been making pace for the likes of Joop Zoetemelk, Gianni Bugno, Francesco Moser and Erik Zabel. And yes, the name Zijlaard might just ring a bell: he is father in law to Leontien Zijlaard-Van Moorsel, former 2x world champion and 2x golden medallist at the Olympics.
