The phenomenal “Aske” 06-3124707 from Rik Cools - Ruiselede (BE) won the 1st prov Bourges old birds in West-Flanders.

It was no surprise to anybody that grandmaster Rik Cools from Ruiselede achieved a provincial victory….because Cools has a great deal of good marchandise sitting in his racing and breeding lofts. A rich collection of Ace pigeons and provincial winners.


In the provincial doubles of the national Bourges his well-known “Aske” took the first prize against 595 opponents. What this pigeon has shaken out of his wings during his career is in the pigeon sport is of a particularly high standard. In 2007 he was, amongst other things, 1st provincial Ace pigeon KBDB W-Fl. in the category yearlings; This year (’09) he has already won the 1st Tours 119th and 4th prov. Tours 1495 pigeons.
1st prov. Bourges will now be added to his extensive honours list.
