For the last few years Dave van Zon has also been successful in the 1-day long distance races. After having a 1st NPO victory for 3 years in a row, and now the consecutive 1st National Ace pigeon Sprint W.H.Z.B., we are very curious as to what Dave van Zon will achieve in the next racing year 2011 ……
