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: The colours of France

No, no in July it is not Blue+White+Red, it is more like Yellow, Green and a dotted Red on White.

Part 3) Green

The shown 2009 Green Jersey was a collectors item, I mean it was for somebody who did collect points. I mean points not red dots, that is something else, although he was climbing pretty well and I think actually scored some mountain points as well. Anyway it took more than speed, it also took a clever mind. E.g. a mind that tells you not play around with white powders outside of the kitchen.

In 2010 it might be a different story, but again it looks like the fastest sprinter is not getting the green jersey. And to be honest if the winner would be someone who once had to much Asthma spray, riding for a team, which ....well You know what I mean. In the past the Belgians scored very well in the green jersey competition. Find an article featuring 13 Belgian green jerseys in this mag:

Anyway my personal green jersey looks like this:

And no it is not related to drunk riding, more collecting points at the inner city traffic light sprints.
