Team Florea Sorin (RO) combines champions without borders

A unique project in pigeon racing, inspired by the Romanian visionary Florea Sorin. In business and in life his ability to think beyond borders with co-operation and participation as keywords, brought him great success. These exact same starting points are now the base of Team Florea Sorin in order to reach their ultimate goal; breeding and racing winners all over the world.

Team Florea Sorin is a partnership involving Florea Pea Ion, Florea Sorin, Dr Dinu Mihai from Romania with Nikolaas and Thomas Gyselbrecht from Belgium. Dinu Mihai directly emphasizes: “But naturally also the guys that are responsible for the daily work; cleaning of the lofts, feeding, etcetera. All involved have put some soul into it.” And here the ambitious PIPA agent directly mentions what it is really all about; Passion. Passion for super pigeons that is bound to be translated to a greater goal. To win everything that is to win … to become the best … in Romania from 100 to 1000 km  … but also in Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands and in one loft races all around the world!

Florea Sorin - also a boxing promoter - likes to the make connection between Team Florea Sorin and the legend Muhammed Ali, who once said: “Champions are made from something they have deep inside; a desire, a dream, a vision.” These ingredients are shared by all participating in Team Florea Sorin. Nikolaas Gyselbrecht: “Mr. Sorin came with the idea of this project. For many years now he is bringing top pigeons to his breeding stables; only the most finest of the Belgian, German and Dutch pigeon sport. He knew from the beginning that youngsters with Romanian rings can compete anywhere in the world, in any circumstances. We agreed and asked for the help of many good friends we've made all over the world through PIPA and our beautiful passionate pigeon sport.”

Team Florea Sorin started new partnerships with some of the great names in international pigeon sport, names like Alfons Klaas , Klaus Stieneker and Andreas Drapa in Germany, Eros Carboni in Italy and Marcel Sangers in Holland. To all these big names, teams of 20-25 youngsters with Romanian rings were sent, and the results are more than promising already. All these champions are supplied as a direct product of the treasure chamber with top pigeons in the Balcanic states, to which Florea Sorin holds the key.
