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.

Another kit order has come and gone and I'm proud to announce some additions to our ever expanding juggernaut of cross and cobble. So without further a do, here goes a welcome to:

Mark Leyland: A Former north west rider now living in the midlands which expands our midenglandshire membership by 100%...which means there's now 2.

Suneil "Sunny" Curwen: Sunny is of Tap Timing fame which is making a decent fist of keeping track of the Yorkshire Cyclocross league amongst others. Owning a team kit now gives Sunny carte Blanche to overindulge in cross, cobble and belgian beer... his own admission, you read it here first.

Richard Seipp: Of qwertyphoto fame. Richard is a pro freelance photographer based in the Peak District. He's both rider, racer and photographer... I just wonder if he can do it all at once?.. while juggling fire*.

Ken Bloomer: Ken is another addition to our European contingent. Ken owns and runs Crema Cycles in Germany. He rides, races and writes, but then again, why am I bothering to tell you, here's Ken himself...

*I shouldn't make glib comments like this. He probably can do all this and more.


  1. Sadly mein Deutsch is klein - I got 'father', 'cyclocross', 'November' and 'one, two, three' and'fast'... the rest I'm afraid was just visual but very entertaining - he's a nice smiley person :)
