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.

Belgiums at the World Championship 2012..

The Secret behind the success of the 
Belgiums at the World Championship -
revealed by Team Here comes the Belgians:

Signature of Tom Boonen
The success of the team was based on frites. Why? 
Because the riders had to bloody win to get some frites.
That was the very strict ruling of one man: Maitre Norbert.

Norbert at the Lepelbed, Melle
Only pasta and rice - no frites.
Or even porridge for breakfast...
THAT motivates to win!

If not cooking for the Belgian team 
Maitre Norbert is at the Lepelbed 
in Melle, south of Ghent.

In the hotel are signed jerseys by e.g. the English and Australian track teams

These teams are staying at the Lepelbed in Melle 
- when training on the Ghent track.

Actually the success story started one year ago,
- Gilbert signed a Here comes the Belgians jersey.

After this become known among the Belgian riders
- Boonen signed
- Vansummeren signed
and two more riders signed

So we have a good chance of having signed the 2013
Belgian world champion, at least we have five Paris-Roubaix.
