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.

The Cumberland Challenge

First of all, an apology. I've not been posting, e-mailing or even reading much lately. I blame Oscar, our 4 1/2 month old Labrador. I aim to rectify the situation in the coming months. So in that spirit...

I rode the Cumberland Challenge last weekend, my first proper event in Belgian's colours. The Challenge is a 105 mile sportif across north Cumbria, Northumberland and a brief foray into Scotland just before you turn for home. Credit for the photos goes to who will be getting some cash!

Write up will follow in full (with Photos) over the weekend. Theres some crackers of me going all Boonen on Alston High Street (Cobbled 1 in 5!)
