Dominate: this is what the Luc De Roeck's pigeons did for several decades. Often called the cannibal from Manage, this fancier left nothing for his opponents during his career and at all distances. But it is mainly during the last ten years that the De Roeck’s pigeons entered another dimension gaining here and there, several national triumphs. Since 2004, the record list of this fancier gained no less than four national victories, dozens of zonal victories, a title of Belgian National Champion, several classifications in the national championships and a huge amount of prizes in the national top 100.
The undisputed number one champion in the extreme long distance today is Jelle Jellema. His outstanding pigeon breed has been dominating the international long distance competition for years, and his achievements have surprised us time and time again. Jelle's overall results from this year's race from Barcelona (1258km) were particularly impressive: a 3rd, 10th, 18th, 37th, 77th and 173rd National against 5,244 pigeons. It was one of the best results ever in Barcelona. In this special auction Jelle is selling youngsters from this already legendary team for Barcelona, along with some of their parents. This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to step up his game in the international classics.
Benny Steveninck continues to dominate the pigeon competition in Belgium in 2016. The champion from Hamme has been winning provincial and national top prizes seemingly with ease this season. His renowned Chipo dynasty proves particularly tough to beat, even for some of the most successful pigeon fanciers worldwide. Benny is now selling a select group of young birds from his first class breeders on PIPA.
One of the most successful Gaby Vandenabeele based pigeon breeds in Belgium is that of Luc De Laere. His Justine Bliksem is probably the most valuable daughter of Gaby's renowned Bliksem, since she bred numerous first prize winners for the De Laere pigeon family. Her bloodlines combined particularly well with the exceptional Tieke dynasty as well, and this combination gave way to multiple generations of racing birds that have excelled season after season. Luc is now selling youngsters from his best breeding and racing birds on PIPA.
The name of Yves Van de Poel has been associated with the race from Barcelona for many years now. He has been really successful in this classic, which happens to be his favourite race on the calendar. But Yves is always looking for new goals, and so he decided to compete in the longer middle distance and the long distance as well, where he managed to win a 1st Nat. Chateauroux old birds in 2014. He has now added a prestigious national victory to his palmares, winning a first prize in the last extreme long distance race of the season: the classic from Perpignan. Yves is selling a group of top class pigeons from his best breeders on PIPA.
