For the most recent top results from the descendants of Jelle's pigeons, we head to Eastern Europe, since they excelled both in Poland and Bulgaria.
Marek Trzaska won a 1st Mysliborz of 4,517 pigeons on 6th of June in Poland. The pigeon with ring number PL-02064-18-10187 took the win in this 340km race against a large field.
The sire of the winning pigeon is a direct Jelle Roziers: BE17-6037734. His pedigree shows that he is related to the iconic Queen L twice.
And the sire of BE17-6037734 is Carlton Junior BE10-6356260, grandfather of a 17th Nat. Bourges of 38,000 p. and a 1st Duffel of 6,410 p. His sire is a grandson of Jonge Artiest and a 100% Houben. The dam of Carlton is the now world famous Queen L, BE04-62777729. She developed into a stock dam for Roziers, after winning a 1st Nat. La Souterraine of 16,297 p. in 2004 as a young bird.
The dam of Carlton Junior is Joni BE16-6060504. She was a 4th Ace Pigeon YBs Antwerp long distance club (behind two loft mates). She is herself a daughter of Jacky Fantasy BE11-6140043 and Billy Queen BE11-6140183, a daughter of Queen L.
Team Vicont & Vicontesa
The pigeons of Team Vicont & Vicontesa competed against 2,500 other birds in a race in Bulgaria on 6th of June. They claimed a 3rd Tutrakan (250km) and 5th Tutrakan of 2,500 p. Both birds are youngsters of a cock that they obtained through PIPA.
This cock, Halfbrother Seven BE16-6263322, was inbred to another important breeder in Jelle's collection: Whity Bart. The sire of Halfbrother Seven is Whity Bart himself, BE12-6314349. He is a 100% Bart Geerinckx from his Fluwelen 18, BE05-6052018 and National Treasure, BE08-6374778.

Pedigree Halfbrother Seven BE16-6263322
And we also head to the north of Europe, where Henrik Meldgaard from Denmark has a very gifted breeding hen in his collection with Miss Kali Queen BE16-6263964. Miss Kali Queen is a 100% Roziers pigeon and she bred the following two race winners:
- 070-18-0235 won a 1st Garlsorf of 1,666 p. (207 km) on 23rd of May.
- 070-19-0964 won 1st Altona of 462 p. (170 km) on 16th of May.
Winning and letting others win
We have the national young birds' races coming up soon in Belgium. And it goes without saying that Jelle Roziers will be one of the men to watch. And you can tell from his numerous references in recent years that he has supplied quite a few others fanciers with his invaluable birds as well. Several pigeon lofts from across the globe performed significantly better after introducing a few of Jelle's bloodlines.
