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.

New Years CX Resolutions

A days winter climbing in the Lakes to finish off the year reminded me that it is a good idea to write down all those things you really mean to do, last February I swore I would always put the Dachsteins in the belay jacket's pockets before I started up the route and get a modern harness that doesn't require double threading the buckle when it's minus three. So here is my list for next cross season
  1. Race on tubs next season (well apart from the 3 Peaks) Have I been brainwashed by Crossjunkie?
  2. Keep to a training plan and practice skills (big weakness) to prepare for the cx season.
  3. Get to the start early and start nearer the front, it is a race after all.
  4. Get back into running when all the injuries subside. I've missed a whole year of fell racing now :-(
  5. Remember to stretch regularly (see 4 above)
  6. Keep having fun!
Happy New Year to all the HCtB crew
