Dirk Van Den Bulck surprised many by winning the national championship and the title of 1st Nat. Ace Pigeon Sprint Young Birds KBDB.

When racing together in partnership in Whitley Bridge, North Yorkshire, Mark and Dick Evans were known as fierce competitors who would win from the first to the last race. Their lofts in Snaith are now focused on breeding pigeons for their partnership lofts in the UK and North America and also for their customers who return year upon year to purchase from the exceptional quality stock housed at Myrtle Lofts. Their ambition throughout their time in racing pigeons has remained the same: to breed the best racing pigeons in the World!
