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.

Scottish Cross - Plean

The second race in the Scottish series had me visiting Plean for the first time and racing in a true Mudfest of a race. This is the first time I have had to race in such heavy conditions, and I think its fair to say that the mud won on this occasion.

Clearing mud from the bike every few hundred yards had me dreaming of dedicated pit crews, jet washers and spare bikes!

Failing that I could always try pushing a bit harder on the pedals!!

  1. I could tell you struggled with the conditions by the look of horror in your eyes - even a week after the race - and all the talk of 'sticking to TTing'!!!

    Poppy cock.
