In the weekend of July 9th there were 3 races scheduled: Melun, Gueret and Noyon. Loft Vercammen managed three impressive results, especially on Melun on which the first 6 (!) pigeons on this race in Union Antwerp were from this world-class loft.

Also, on Gueret and Noyon their pigeons didn’t disappoint. Taking 1st and 2nd in the club St. Job with the old birds (15th and 80th National) and 2nd, 3rd and 4th with the yearlings (48th and 87th National on Gueret, there was little to complain about in Vremde. The youngsters also showed good form, taking 2nd, 4th, 5th, etc…against 1,339 pigeons (51/80).
Our first and third pigeon are direct children of Iron Man (BE17-6025089), who is standing up as our new super breeder”, Lars says. Especially when things get tough, these pigeons are at their best, just like their father used to be...
That the top result on Melun was no stroke of luck, was proven by the fact that they once again managed a phenomenal result just a week later. This time, they dominated the result in Union Antwerp with 10 (!!!) pigeons in the Top 11 against 572 old birds + yearlings and against 363 yearlings. Here too, the genes of Iron Man are seen upfront as the 5th, 6th and 7th pigeon descend from this crack!
