Yves Vandepoel (BE)
Complete Marathon Collection
The palmares of Yves Vandepoel is full of National highlights. His passion for Barcelona led him to invest in pigeons of sublime quality to realize his ultimate goal; win National Barcelona. As winner of 1st Nat. Chateauroux 2014, 1st Nat. Chateauroux 2017 and 1st National Perpignan 2016 this was not an unrealistic goal. Nonetheless, the past years Yves felt that being able to battle for the win every week suits him better and has taken a step back from extreme long distance racing. For this reason, he offers his exclusive marathon collection on PIPA, including a/o National winner Remco, children to icons such as Triple 5 Barcelona (Limbourg), Red Ace (De Smeyter-Restiaen), New Laureaat, The Special One, Sumerian Fighter, Luna May and Astrid (Batenburg-Van De Merwe), Lloyd and Eenwitpen Tornado (Team De Jaeger), Lady Barca (Rans), Lotus and Kleine Perpignan (Debusschere), Monseré (Carlo Gyselbrecht), Poco Barcelona and Close One (Van Ouwerkerk-Dekkers) and many more. Unbelievable class, brought together in 1 unique auction!
