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.

Public Service Announcement

My original-design Belgians jersey has started to fall apart at the seams - well the join between the top of the pocket dividers and the jersey at least. I contacted Shutt VR about this and they said that it's a known issue with some of their jerseys. A quick tweet revealed that it's not only my Belgians jersey which is suffering. There is some good news though: in their reply to my e-mail Shutt said that if the afflicted jersey is sent back to them they will repair or replace it.

So if your black-and-white running-Belgian top is destroying itself through no fault of your own, you might want to post it back to: Shutt Velo Rapide Limited, 35 The Grove, Ilkley, Yorkshire LS29 9NJ.


  1. I thought it was just mine. It's already been back to Shutt, who have repaired it. Still a very nice jersey.

  2. On conferring with Adam, we realised we had the same problem. Great fabric, crisp design but those pocket dividers are a bit vulnerable. Will be nice to get a repair as whilst the new kit is suitably awesome, the original still has a charm all of its own :-)
