Thierry and Thomas Sibille (Courcelles, BE) win 1st Seminat. Nevers with a direct Roger Debusschere bird

This racing hen claimed the win in the seminational Nevers of 17 June against 6,077 yearlings, and she was also the fastest overall of a total of 10,702 pigeons.

Thierry Sibille obtained two eggs from Roger Debusschere last year, which got to prove their worth in the lofts in Courcelles. One of them is the winner of the race from Nevers, and she was promptly renamed La Debusschere​. This hen had won a prize per 10 in the races from Vierzon, Nevers, Macon and Bourges in recent weeks as well.

Even more top references for the Roger Debusschere pigeons

It is hardly a secret that Roger Debusschere is always looking for the very best pigeons and bloodlines on the market, always keeping an eye on promising newcomers. You could say that Roger is more a breeder than a racer. He enjoys creating new combinations and breeding descendants from successful racing birds, always trying to find new breeding pairs or breeding birds with great potential. He basically tries to get the most out of the most renowned bloodlines of this generation.

No wonder that so many fanciers have achieved excellent results with the pigeons that they obtained from Roger Debusschere.

One of them is Hugo Vlaeminck from Rupelmonde, 1st National Champion Longer Middle Distance Olds KBDB 2016, and quite a renowned fancier. Hugo was very successful with a descendant of the golden bloodline of Maurice, just like Thierry Sibille. Hugo bred Het Provinciaalke from a daughter of Maurice, and as her name suggests, she is a provincial winner, having won a provincial first prize from La Souterraine:

We have seen some oustanding results at provincial and national level for Thierry Sibille, Hugo Vlaeminck and Patrick Staelens, with pigeons that are related to a considerable extent to Roger Debusschere. These are basically direct descendants of the invaluable breeding loft from Lokeren. These references highlight once again the sheer talent in the lofts of Roger Debusschere. Hats off!
