Gert Noels (Ham, BE) says goodbye to his life's work and from now on sails on his own (pigeon) course

Gert Noels (41) from Ham, Limburg, will be completely independent starting this year. Still in good friendship he puts an end to the intense collaboration with Jos Thoné.

Gert Noels has been on the rise since 2012. That year he made a restart with the intense help of Jos Thoné (As), among others. This collaboration gave Gert wings, literally and figuratively: he obtained the best pigeons from Jos Thoné and they were crossed with the best in Belgium. Just think of Verreckt-Ariën (with Claudio and Olympic Wacko, also super breeder of the PIPA Elite Center), Bart Geerinck (with Gladiator), Albert Derwa (with Paulien) and Marc De Cock. The pigeons and the aforementioned fanciers are without a doubt among the top in the world.Incredibly good pigeons, which gave me an average of a provincial victory every year, the national victory from Jarnac in 2017 and provincial and national championships and Ace pigeons, ”says Gert with pride and also a bit of melancholy. “I want to lead my own pigeon life in all respects and that is why I say goodbye to these top pigeons. A good deal of my life's work is offered for sale. I made that decision still with my friendship with Jos, who has always supported me and now fully understands my decision

Lourdes

In 2017 the real national breakthrough came with 1st Provincial Brive and 1st National Jarnac against 5,117 yearlings. “That was really unforgettable, and that on two very fair races, with a speed just under 1,300 m / min for Jarnac and 1,062 m / min for Brive. The soft-feathered Lourdes descends from a few top pigeons on his father's side. Grandfather 250/12 is a child of Claudio x daughter Olympic Wacko. Claudio won 1ste Interprov., 2 x 1ste Prov. and 7de National Bourges, while Olympic Wacko was the Olympiade pigeon in Poznan for Verreckt-Ariën. Grandmother comes from Joske (Thoné) x Marceline (1e Prov. Argenton with a ten minute lead). Grandfather on the mother's side comes from a son of Paulien x mother Paulien, the absolute base breeder of Albert Derwa. Grandmother on mother’s side is the above mentioned Marceline, herself already mother and great-grandmother of 1ste Prov. Montluçon, 1ste Prov. Châteauroux, 1ste Chimay, 2nd Sézanne, etc.

Hen Lourdes won in 2017 National Jarnac by Gert Noels. Both Marceline and Claudio are in her pedigree
'Marceline' is the base hen by Gert Noels.

Just like Claudio, 'Marceline' delivered great racing and breeding performances. Bred by Jos Thoné.
