Luc Delaere (Anzegem, BE) refuses to let his head drop after missing a national victory

Saturday 7 June was quite a dramatic day for Luc De Laere, who experienced any fancier’s worst nightmare. Luc’s Sproete Tieke (BE11-3115645) missed out on a national victory because Luc failed to perform a time check.


Luc is still in a good mood

Sproet Tieke (BE11-3115645)

We think everyone still remembers that day. The earliest pigeons in the sprint and the middle distance arrived home with an average speed of about 1,400 m/min, and many fanciers were still in the clubs when the pigeons started to come home from Châteauroux. Luc was having a pre dinner drink when he was told that the first pigeons had already been clocked. Unfortunately it was too late: his Sproet Tieke was impatiently waiting for his fancier to take off the control ring. It is perhaps Sproet Tieke himself that suffers the most from this unfortunate event: this former winner of an ace pigeon title in the two Flanders in 2013 has missed the chance to claim a crowning victory. This pigeon had to put in a great effort to win his title of ace pigeon in 2013:

Confidence

Luc’s breeding loft is based on quality rather than quantity, and so he can look forward to the future with great confidence. The missed national victory from Chateauroux was very unfortunate but he will get another chance soon: his racing loft is full of Jonge Tiekes ready to try and take a national win in the seasons to come. We are quite confident that one of them will be able to achieve that feat one day.

Comments

Luc zal er toch wel slecht van geslapen hebben denk ik ... en terecht.
Luc was trouwens niet de enige die verrast werd op deze vlucht.
De KBDB zou er werk van moeten maken om dit soort toestanden in de toekomst te voorkomen.
Met de huidige technologie moet dit geen probleem zijn ... weg met dat extra constateren en telefoneren.
Bij deze wens ik Luc dan ook een rechtmatige nationale overwinning in 2015 toe !!

Terug het verhaal van het beste paard dat de verdiende haver niet krijgt.
Zielig ,maar wat wil je met een ouderlingenvereniging die de KBDB leidt.
Jonge mensen met vernieuwende ideeen zijn er nodig om de sport te redden.
Hallo Thomas en Nicolaas???

Mijn en alleen mijn mening , schaf alle controles af en ik stop met het duivenspel , in mijn ogen kunnen er niet genoeg gebeuren en zeker ook op de snelheid !
