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.

Chelmsford, Colchester, Hemel Hempstead, Luton...

"Up to much at the weekend?" Mostly I will be riding around or thinking about riding around a school playing field in Luton, possibly in the rain. On a bike with one gear. I was going to post about the season so far witthout anything greater than a 20t freewheel when I chanced upon this which says everything far more eloquently than I could manage:

Thus far have finished around the middle of most fields having completed 5 races, which I'm really quite chuffed about. Best result was 50th out of 140 (yep 140 punters charging headlong into singletrack) in the London league around early october. Worst was last week on a hilly course in Colchester, 43 out of 53 starters I think, completely wrong gear for the climbs and ended up running a bit. Well about 5 times a lap. For 7 laps. Still all cross is better than no cross my friends.

And have a look at this Muddy Hell vid.

It looks completely ace and I somehow managed to miss it.


  1. Colchester or Mistley? That Mistley course is a monster - pure muddy hell with nasty ramps in the woods. Do I not like that course, to paraphrase Turnip Head.

    Having said that , you'll probably find me and Major One at the back of the grid in January!
