Roger Mylle (BE) - 101 pigeons - 1,158 EURO / pigeon
It was a big blow to the pigeon world when Roger Mylle passed away at the beginning of August 2020. He was playing once more a super season, as everyone was used to in recent years. Long distance and extreme long distance were the chosen fields of action for the Mylle pigeons. Roger managed to reach the national podium in 2019 as 14th Nat. champion KBDB, and he achieved the 9th Nat. with super-bird Bagatelli, Ace Pigeon Long Distance and Extreme Long Distance JL KBD. A year earlier, he had already won with Ata the title of 5th Nat. Ace Pigeon Long Distance and Extreme Long Distance JL KBDB. In that same year, he had also won with Pau-Joël the 1. Best Perpignan pigeon in Belgium over 2 years (PIPA ranking) in 2018, something that he had already previously achieved with "St. Vincent". Although Roger wasn’t there anymore to see this for himself, it was clear that his pigeon family paid a posthumous tribute to their deceased owner by classifying themselves as 9th Nat. champion Long Distance Jl KBDB, 13th General champion KBDB and 21st Nat. champion Extreme Long Distance KBDB, in 2020.
The life's work figuratively came under the hammer yesterday. It turned out to be a wonderful reward for Roger Mylle's life's work. The auction raised a total of 117,000 EURO.
