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.

Here come the Belgians Style Guide Edizione Due

What is fashionable this month? With our 2010 team jerseys still somewhere behind the great wall, there is no reason to ride semi naked or even worse not to ride at all. So what is hot in May 2010:

Almost nothing beats a nice maglia rosa, especially in the very limited "Here come the Belgians" edition.
(Pick any old pink jersey whose design You do not like and attach the team logo over it)
Just add any black tubulari, dark chocolade and Penne Regata.

Although You might prefer British understatement:

Maglia Nera! It is the jersey for the connoisseur, the person that enjoys riding - not looking at the clock all the time. The best rider just in a different context.
2009 Team Jersey available from Shutt VR, Continental Competition 25 mm Pink - priceless, choice of colour matched chocolade about 1 GBP.

So far so good, still looking for a bib short?
Something not boring black, something more stylish?
Well, see what Mailand came up with:

A Cippolini design from about 2004
