Kubacek Lubomir (CZ)
Top class racing & breeding birds + youngsters of his best breeders

His stock pair Koler x Sudorka is particularly high value, and he also introduced some of the best Gaston Van De Wouwer birds in his team. A super class pigeon collection is now offered for sale in a fantastic auction.

Jeroen en Stijn Rans (BE)
Youngsters of the best breeding and racing birds

Stijn and Jeroen Rans are among the best extreme long distance players of today, and they came to the fore in 2017, when they won two first prizes in Belgium, which is of course a unique feat. In 2018 they added a 1st Zone and a 2nd Nat. Valence to their palmares, along with several other top results. The best bloodlines of this team today are Ed and Barcelonaduivin. Ed is a grandson of the renowned Joost of De Smeyter-Restiaen, and he was purchased in the sale of Declercq-Vervaeren on PIPA. He is the sire of a 1st National Perpignan. Barcelonaduivin stems from the lines of Robert Van Eycken (through Jos Vanderstappen) and she came into prominence as 1st International Ace Pigeon Barcelona 2007-2012. She has a title of 2nd Primer Inter Pares 2008-2012 and 7th Primus Inter Pares 2007-2011 to her name as well. A group of young birds from the team's best stars and national winners will be sold in a fabulous PIPA auction.

Thibaut-Boons (BE)
All old birds of 2016 and older

The great champion Jean-Marc Thibau Boons is selling his entire old birds' collection from 2016 and older in a fantastic auction. This is a group of proven modern-day breeders and talented racing birds, sold along with a selection of youngsters of his best pigeons. It goes without saying that the renowned Audrey dynasty forms the backbone of this pigeon collection.

Jean-Marc Thibaub-Boons will always remember 2017 as the year of his first national victory. His victory in the young birds' race from Argenton was the last top prize still missing on his palmares. From then on, he was one of the most celebrated fanciers in Belgium. Jean-Marc has asked PIPA to sell his most precious pigeons in auction, including the following champions:

- 3rd Nat. ace pigeon shorter middle YLs KBDB 2015 (Vikie)
- 7th Nat. ace pigeon great middle distance YLs KBDB 2015 (Sylvie)

Stef Bals (P-B)
Top class racing birds and youngsters of the best breeders

Stef Bals is a young and highly talented fancier that has caught his opponents by surprise more than a few times already. He obtained pigeons from Maarten Huijsmans, the Dutch superstar of today, and Stef soon was able to raise the bar with the help of these pigeons. Stef had a great day in Sens (374km), when his talented racing team claimed a 1st-2nd-3rd-4th of 4,971 pigeons. It was a crowning achievement after an already fantastic season. PIPA asked the new kid in town to auction a select group of exclusive pigeons. It means one of the future top teams of our sport is now available for sale!

Co en Piet Verbree (P-B)
Youngsters of their best breeders

Co and Piet Verbree have repeatedly demonstrated the unique qualities of their super class birds over the past few decades. The Verbree combination has been particularly successful in the NPO classics and the national championships, and several other fanciers have excelled with the Verbree birds as well. Co and Piet traditionally sell some of their best racing and breeding birds on PIPA every season, and today we have the super class bloodlines of such 1st National Ace Pigeons and Olympiad Pigeons as Marchino, Olympic Samantha, Anita, Valita, Youliya, etc. on offer. This is a super class collection!

Gebr. Scheele (P-B)
Youngsters of his best breeders

The Scheele Brothers continued to win one top prize after another in 2018: they claimed several first prizes in major races, which shows that they are still one of the leading teams in pigeon racing in The Netherlands. And each of these top prizes can be attributed to an invaluable group of breeding birds. And they are likely to win many more top prizes in the near future as well, with the descendants of their super class pairs of today: Bonny x Cher and Jeroen Jr. x Hanny. We are selling a group of youngsters from their best breeders.

John Crehan (UK)
Youngsters of the best Hooymans breeders

The collaboration between John Crehan and Jan Hooymans, which started a while back, has been quite a success indeed. Jan was looking for someone to put his pigeons to the test in Great Britain, and super class fancier John Crehan proved a perfect partner. John in turn was able to introduce some super class birds in his own lofts, capable of crushing their opponents. As a result, John won quite a number of prizes in the RPRA Awards again in 2018 (nat. ace pigeons). The best Hooymans birds from the lofts of John Crehan will be sold in a super class auction.

Karlo van Rompaey (BE)
Youngsters of his most important breeders

Anfang 2018 versteigerte Karlo Van Rompaey seine gesamte Zucht- und Reisemannschaft mit großem Erfolg auf PIPA. Die Nationalsieger Prima Dora und Hattrick schrieben Geschichte, und Nachkommen von diesen Cracks waren heiß begehrt und fanden bei Züchtern in der ganzen Welt eine neue Heimat. Karlo bietet nun noch einige der letzten Kinder, die er aus seinen besten Tauben gezüchtet hat, wie u.a. aus Hattrick, in einer Versteigerung auf PIPA an.
