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.

Ronde van Oost Lancashire - 2011

Pic: Andy Waterman

Belgians were out in force for the 2nd running of RVOL up in Lancashire. In no particular order:

Rich Allen
Mark Turner
Simon Nurse
Dave Haygarth
John Elkin
Stef Chandler
Jason Miles
Mark Bradley
Nick Jardine
Alan Dorrington

Last minute apologies were sent by a fair few more too. Duncan and Gavin Long had good excuses though, being over in Flanders for the weekend.

An honorary mention too for Andy 'Never mind the Belgians, Here Comes ViCiOUS VELO' Waterman and Ben Spurrier from Rapha Condor who drove up from London to get in amongst the action. Hope we sent you back with sore legs......

Jonathon Day from Strada Wheels, tied up with the birth of their first child, sent a pair of wheels for me to ride instead. Nice touch. Review of the cobble and cross specific handbuilt Major Toms coming soon...

Pics, chat and general nonsense over on crossjunkie blog
