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.

Almost there.

This weekend is the National Hill Climb Championship and I won't be there. Had my entry returned as not quite good enough to qualify. Although disappointed, I've had a great autumn. I've done a mixture of road races and hill climbs. Apart from York City Centre I've been able to be part of the racing and had a great time. For anyone who's toying with the idea of racing, just dive in and give it a go! You'll love it!! It's certainly given me a taste for it again, so I'll get stuck into a good winter and be back next year.


  1. Tough luck with the national entry :-( A winter season of CX would surely help you prepare for the summer?

  2. I'm really tempted. Need a bike and more time riding/less time working.
