Delivering when it counts...on the first national classic of the 2022 racing season. Something that only the best manage to do, in any given sport. Pigeon sport is no different in that sense. That Dirk Speybroeck - racing under the name of BDS/Speybroeck, as a member of Team BDS - can get his pigeons to peak at the right moment is already known...his results from the past are proof of his class, with victories on a club, provincial and zonal level, resulting in national titles and KBDB ace pigeons.
On the opening national classic of this season from Bourges, the BDS/Speybroeck pigeons did not miss the boat. The result in numbers:
28/05 Bourges Club 452 Yearlings:
