Albert Murez-Marichal (Wadelincourt, BE) is crowned as 1st National Champion middle distance KBDB 2017

Over the last few years, it became usual to find Albert Murez-Marichal on the podium of one or several national championships of the KBDB. After he added the title of 1st National Ace Pigeon small middle distance yearlings KBDB to his name in 2016, he continued his success thanks to his recent title of 1st National Champion middle distance KBDB 2017.

This makes of him one of the biggest specialists in that discipline in Belgium. However, you can find his name in all the flying distances as his pigeons are performing well up until 800 kilometres. Albert is currently lucky to manage a very strong generation of racers, probably the strongest of his whole career, and these pigeons have just delivered him two brilliant national triumphs on a silver plate during the last two years.

The title from 2017 has been won with 5 races held six weeks in a row from the end of May until the end of June and during these races, the pigeons from the Murez-Marichal loft were simply unstoppable. At the end of the competition, the coefficient was 9,1825%, which stays in the same percent as the previous years. Several pigeons born in 2016 brought their contribution to win this title so the expectations are high for the coming years but the future will tell. Another major fact: several pigeons who booked a classificiation in the national KBDB championships as ace pigeons in 2016 booked another classification in 2017 in the same rankings. There is no secret and the titles can be won only with the best pigeons.

The line of Bourges, again at the top of her game

In this report, we are going to introduce you to the best racers from this loft. An unique but also a quite logical feat when you know the central position of these pigeons in his loft, all the pigeons who won the national title are related to Bourges, a former national winner of the race from Bourges against 10,906 pigeons and fantastic central breeder of the Murez-Marichal loft. During our previous reports, we already underlined several times the influence of this pigeon on this loft and we are forced to admit that it's strengthening year after year. The current breeding team is formed by numerous descendants of this winner as well as several brothers/sisters. That's how in 2017, the best pigeons were bred out of one brother, three sisters & a direct daughter of this fantastic pigeon. It’s proof that the good ones are bred from the good ones, moreover that they were plenty to fly in the skies of Wadelincourt over the last few years !

Let's now have a look at the best racers from 2017:
