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.

And all veterans I see too.........

Oh and Dave Haygarth who took the pics below of myself and Carl Nelson. Dave is a true Belgian at heart but has to ride for someone else as they give him shiny bikes and stuff. And because he's a bit fast.

How is everyone's training going for this years race? Keep us posted and add your pics/stories on the blog in the run up to Sept 25th.

  1. I think there are several other Belgians doing the Peaks "incognito". I knew Winkie Thin was doing it and also spotted Jane and Sunny Curwen (Pedalsport) and Simon Nurse (Cardiff JIF / Here come the Belgians). There will also be several Belgians out on the course providing support. The ones I know about are Jo Allen, John Parkinson and Mark Bradley. Any more?
