Stefaan decided in 2016 to start racing from two different locations. His team in Berlaar competes in his favourite competition: the shorter middle distance. His pigeons in Nijlen are raced under the name of his children Ynthe Aure and Lincia Lambrechts, and they compete in the sprint races against some of the best teams in Antwerp in the Tienverbond Union. Both teams have been doing great. Stefaan won the title of 14th National Ace Pigeon Shorter Middle Distance KBDB YBs in 2016 in Berlaar, and the team from Nijlen claimed the title of 9th National Champion Sprint KBDB YBs. Most of these top results can be attributed to some excellent racing birds, including:
BE15-6108145 Lincia (1st Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB) BE13-6151188 Super 188 (2nd Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB) BE14-6087164 Tornado (3rd Nat. Ace Pigeon KBDB) BE10-6146323 Zoon superbroer Eenoogske (sire 1st Dutch Olympiad Pigeon Nitra K & K Meijers 2013) BE10-6291346 Ace Pigeon Noyon (dam 1st Dutch Olympiad Pigeon Nitra K & K Meijers 2013) etc.
2017 has been a good season as well, with great results and high prize percentages in both lofts, especially in the second half of August. These are a some of the best results in the lofts in Berlaar and Nijlen:

Founded on an impressive breeding loft
Hard work and a strict selection pocedure have made Stefaan a top level player. His results are founded on a breeding loft with exceptional pigeons, which fanciers both at home and abroad have benefitted from. Such champions as Lincia, Super 188, Tornado, Blauwe Gert and Van Loockduivin are just a few of many invaluable pigeons in Stefaan's collection. These pigeons can really excel in races of 100 to 500km. Stefaan's racing team is in excellent form, despite a difficult season with several losses. You can tell from their results in the last few weeks in particular.
