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.

Chasing Back On...

I think I now understand my role in this Road/Classic/Cyclocross microcosm. It's the one of the rider we've all seen on TV, off the back, chasing back on. Not through lack of form or deep suffering either. It's the rider who's befallen one of the banana skins that dog our world. Maybe caught behind a crash and fallen in a ditch, a flat tyre just before the Koppenberg or maybe standing behind the level crossing as the breakaway disappears into the distance and the train roars along the tracks.

Bearing this in mind I'd like to introduce another new team member (something I should have done a few weeks ago - chasing on geddit?). So welcome onboard to Jemma Nurse, cross and mountainbike rider, South Wales resident and wife of team member Simon.

Jemma's currently sporting the red summer kit and I can't decide whether it was a case of Simon ordering the wrong size kit or a cunning plan by Mr Nurse to double the female presence on the team. Whichever, it's great to have you riding in our kit.

There...Bridged back on.
