Bart Geerinckx (Wommelgem, BE) is a major supplier of top class pigeons!

The Geerinckx pigeons have been performing really well both at home and abroad. Not a week goes by without a descendant of Gladiator, Acy or another top class pigeon of Bart Geerinckx winning a top prize in Belgium or The Netherlands, or in any other country.

In November we published a report about what was yet another outstanding season for Bart Geerinckx, which you can reread here. In this report we tried to summarize the many top results that were won in other lofts with Geerinckx pigeons. Had there been a quality label for pigeon fanciers, Bart Geerinckx would be the first to get one. His list of references is really spectacular, even in 2015 alone.

It would be nearly impossible to write an overview of all the top prizes that have been won thanks to the introduction of Geerinckx pigeons. It would be a difficult task as well, since the Bart Geerinckx breed is popular all across the world. This article focuses on the results that Bart has kept track of in Belgium and The Netherlands.

National ace pigeons

No less than seven pigeons that won a prize in the National Championship KBDB 2015 are closely related to the Geerinckx breed:

PEC Racing Team ADK (Tielt - Winge, BE)

The PEC Racing Team ADK owes a lot to the introduction of Bart Geerinckx pigeons as well:

  • 4th National Ace Pigeon yearlings KBDB comes from a grandson of Gladiator
  • 5th National Ace Pigeon longer middle distance yearlings KBDB and 8th National Ace Pigeon long distance yearlings come from a daughter of that same Gladiator.


Gladiator, without doubt one of Belgium's best breeding birds ever (and beyond)!

To conclude

As we said, this overview only includes the top results from Geerinckx related pigeons in Belgium and The Netherlands. This list is by no means complete. The Geerinckx breed is one of the most successful lofts in Belgium in the past few decades. Youngsters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren from this breed have been winning top prizes in Belgium, The Netherlands and all across the world on a weekly basis. This is how Bart Geerinckx has become one of the most important ambassadors of pigeon racing in Belgium.

You will see this is only the beggining !!! Only the beggining concerning your results, and also your refferences Wink

I know very good that the modesty is the quality of REAL champions(despite the sport), but your modesty reminds me of the wisdom of the buddhists and ofcourse the winsdom of Dalai Lama. No exageration at all.

The future is yours my brother ! The future is ours ! Smile

All the best from Romania,

Your friend,

Bart,

Bij mijn come back in 2013 kocht ik bij u een ronde jongen,

Toen ik ze kwam ophalen was ik al meteen in mijn nopjes over de geleverde kwaliteit!

De eertse jongen die ik eruit kweekten in 2014 gaven 4e, 5e, 8e en 16e nationale asduif in 2015 bij de jaarduiven en zeker 30 maal top 100 nationaal!

Bedankt voor zo een geweldige bediening

Dag Bart,

Via mijn vriend Pascal Ariën geraakte ik ook aan jou soort.

Owv tijdsgebrek kan ik zelf niet veel deelnemen aan wedstrijden , maar op andere hokken doet jou soort het zeer goed.

Een jaarling vloog dit jaar bij Blockx Lucien(Laakdal) een 2°prov. Vierzon 783 duiven in prov. Antwerpen , zijn nestzus vloog ook al een 1° op Soissons in haar geboortejaar.

Beide komen uit een kruising van Verreckt-Ariën ('Norma' en 'Claudio') x Geerinckx ( lijnen 'Gladiator' en 'Witpen Wouters')

Ik bedank hierbij zowel Pascal als jou voor de goeie kwaliteit van duiven die ik nu op mijn hok kan bezitten.

Sportieve groeten
Vreys Peter

The place to be if you wanna get some great bloodline from a honest guy !!!

His step never stops and moves faster and better !
A jewelry of Belgium sports indeed !

Dag Bart

We hebben elkaar de laatste jaren beter leren kennen. Je bent niet alleen een TOPliefhebber maar je hebt ook een TOP persoonlijkheid. Iemand die nooit vergeet van waar hij komt en ondanks de enorme successen op zowel prestatie als commercieel vlak met de voetjes op de grond blijft en alles nuchter en realistisch bekijkt.

De enorme successen komen er na een weg van hard werken maar ook door zeer goeie duiven die zich manifesteren zowel op eigen hok als op diverse hokken in binnen- en buitenland.
De keuze om vooral te investeren is uw eigen stam, door de top duiven zelf aan te houden, maken uw stam op dit moment de meest unieke binnen het hedendaags duivenlandschap.
Vergeet ook de zeer belangrijke inbreng van vader zaliger niet, hij ziet dat het goed is Wink.
Vergeet ook de mensen uit je naaste omgeving niet, die achter de schermen actief medeverantwoordelijk zijn voor deze successen.
Vergeet ook de commerciële omkadering van PIPA niet en tot slot de toppers welke bovenstaande super referenties kunnen voorleggen.

Een eindpunt is dit zeker en vast niet, records gaan binnenkort sneuvelen Smile!

Tot binnenkort.

Groeten
Tom Van Gaver
