Fresh from his team gold and individual bronze at the European Championships comes Cian O'Connor (IRL), while Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) comes with team silver in the luggage to the Brussels Stephex Masters. 

The full Belgian team from Gothenburg consisting of Gregory Wathelet, Niels Bruynseels – last year's Rolex Grand Prix winner at Stephex, Pieter Devos as well as Jerome Guery will of course be present as will Belgium's leading lady rider Gudrun Patteet who won the Rolex Grand Prix of Knokke in July.
