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.

My new bike has arrived. Below is the inspiration. A stealthy cross beast, top end kit, no doubt ridden by a top athlete at the edge of human athletic excellence.

This is the reality.

An orange bike outside a shed. Ridden by a chap seriously short in fitness riding cross for the first time sans gears. An early ride has proved that jogging is no way to produce race fitness. This is my training route, I shall be weaving and panting like a dray up this for the next few weeks in an effort to gain some semblance of race day form. Onwards, my friends.
