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.

Beacon Park Cross

Beacon Park hosted the NW League Final last Sunday - a final fling for part timers and last gasp chance for full time League riders to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory or vica versa........

There was a great course laid out, alternating between fast track and boggy grassland with the odd mudbath section in between to slow things down a bit. Though muddy it was still a fast course and one that didn't favour any particular style of riding. Other than flat out.

Four Belgians contented themselves with personal battles - Rich and Alan, and Dunc and Mark with some close racing in the opening laps.

Jo, resplendent in her new Belgian Supporters Club jacket provided moral support, jacket holding and her best pics yet.

  1. Sounds like a great course. Everything finished in South Wales during December. Only another 7 months to go.....
