Watch and listen to the first episode of the PIPA Podcast here with Karlo Van Rompaey (Sint-Truiden, BE) after his incredible top season with 4 national victories, including 3 x 1st and 2nd. The 2023 racing season had two faces, a warm and tough start, in which the west side of the country managed to take advantage of every opportunity in the national flights. Then a second part in which the wind shifted and suddenly gave the eastern side of Belgium an advantage.
The absolute standout in this second part of the national racing season was Karlo Van Rompaey. With 4 national victories in 3 weeks, including 3 x 1+2 national, Karlo was the big winner. Now that the pigeons have started moulting, we had Karlo come to Knesselare as our first guest in the brand new PIPA Podcast. In this first episode we talk about anticipation, realism, periodization, launching your attack at the right time, the greater importance of flight hours compared to distance, the usefulness of a leaflet for vaccinations and much more.
