In 1897 and 1898 Bertrand was the Belgian road master. During the championship in 1897, the route near Rochefort was over 100 km, and people were driven behind pacemakers . 17 racing drivers were at the start. Because of the bad road conditions, there were numerous failures; a driver made a detour of six kilometers. Only eight drivers finally crossed the finish line. The following year the championship took place in Châtelet, again over 100 kilometers with pacemakers. As in the previous year, Bertrand won ahead of the racing driver Virlée from Namur .
In 1905 Bertrand won the Provincial de Namur Championships .
