Alwin Petrie (Brummen,NL) shows exceptional class, in 2020 and over the past several decades

Alwin Petrie has an amazing pigeon in his team with super class hen Gigi. She had a great racing career and is proving to be an excellent breeder as well: her (grand)children claimed a title of 5th Best Fancier in The Netherlands WHZB 2020, plus several national top 10 ace birds.

Alwin had had a great 2019 season and we reckon the year 2020 will be just as memorable for him. Throughout the last several decades, his pigeon family has shown to be capable of racing at the highest level. In the 1980s Alwin started developing a pigeon family that is still the basis for success today. And it goes without saying that he will occasionally invest in other bloodlines as well. These are thoroughly put to the test before they are incorporated into his existing breed. But pigeon racing had not been his number one priority over the last number of years, for several reasons: he was forced to move due to a dyke relocation, he had to use a temporary loft, there was a constant flow of construction traffic, and he had to move house in two phases. But with this finally out of the way, Alwin has already had some very solid results at national level over the past couple of years, racing from his new location. He also gets a bit of help from his daughter Maaike, which does play an important role in this team: it is in part thanks to her never-ending enthusiasm that Alwin is now as passionate as ever. In fact, Maaike has been keeping pigeons on her own last season, with 13 racing cocks and 1 hen, which she looked after all by herself. Meanwhile, Alwin was responsible for a team of 36 racing hens. And they looked after the young birds together, which they enjoyed a lot, judging from their achievements and championship titles over the last couple of years, all at national/NPO/provincial level (Unfortunately, most of the 2020 championship titles are yet to be awarded). Let's have a look:

De Gigi dynasty

For the past 30 years, Alwin has been one of the absolute best pigeon fanciers in The Netherlands, racing with ONE SINGLE family. And the phenomenal Gigi has been one of the most important members of his team recently. She was quite successful as a racing bird and her (grand)children are proving to be exceptionally gifted as well, as you can tell from their fantastic results over the years.
