Stefaan Lambrechts (Nijlen, BE) closes the season in style!

Stefan Lambrechts had no less than 10 pigeons in the national top 100 in the closing national race from Chateauroux IV, which makes for a spectacular end to the season indeed. The team from Nijlen was overwhelmingly strong that day.

As you might have read in an earlier article, Stefan had been in excellent form in recent weeks. He even claimed a first national Zone B1 in Bourges, both in the yearlings' and the young birds' race!

However, the fancier from Nijlen kept his best overall result for the last race of the season. Have a look at his fabulous overall results in the closing national race from Chateauroux IV of 12,885 pigeons on 15th of September 2018:

11, 16, 17, 26, 27, 38, 40, 48, 83, 89, 110, 116, 117, 154, 222, 320, 322, 342, 353, 374, 382, 383,

1061, 1068, 1184, 1228, 1278,… (65/94)
