13/10/2014 - Rens van der Zijde purchased this Late Lange Vos at the Ludo Claessens pigeon auction (Putte, NL) and it quickly developed into an invaluable breeding cock. He continues to influence the remarkable Van der Zijde pigeon family from the town of Anna Paulowna.
16/12/2013 - Rens van der Zijde has basketed his pigeons for only six races and yet he was capable of finishing in the top three in the one day long distance, among the greatest champions in this discipline. He really knows how to motivate his pigeons at the right moment.
01/07/2011 - Nothing is impossible … if you have exceptional pigeons! Rens vd Zijde proved this in the National Chateauroux, where he raced in the top 10 National sector II and won the 1st NPO North in province 6 against 2.500 pigeons, after having to race an extra 100 km! Considered not possible –yet carried out by the chastened fox.

16/03/2009 - Three pigeon friends race the stars of the heaven in North Holland with mostly the same sort of pigeons. I had arranged to spend a day with these three toppers at the family home of Udo in Heiloo, to talk about our joint hobby.
