Chris Hebberecht (Evergem, BE) can look back at a strong 2020 racing season

Winning 1st National Marseille, in addition to 4 rankings in the national championships KBDB, together formed the basis for a new top season in 2020.

The name Chris Hebberecht is never out of the big pigeon news. The 2020 race season was no exception. This is proven by the mighty honors list and the titles he won up to the provincial and national level… with which he can climb the national podium of the KBDB several times. We list the most important titles:

1. National Marseille 2.102 pigeons 2020
5. National Champion Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020
9. General champion of Belgium KBDB 2020
10. National Champion Rhone Valley KBDB 2020

17. National Champion Extreme Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020
30. National Ace Pigeon Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020

3. Provincial Champion Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020
4. Provincial Ace Pigeon Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020
5. (repeat) Provincial Ace Pigeon Long Distance Old Birds KBDB 2020

Most fanciers probably have to settle for much less.

Very strong breeding source is the basis for success

Stating that the very strong Hebberecht breeding stable belongs among the world’s top when talking about up to the long distance and extreme long distance is stating the obvious. The Hebberecht line is inbred to phenomenal winners and Ace pigeons in his own loft. Names such as Champion, Jempy (father Ike), Pancho, Jaws, AXL, Keno, Edou… - all of them National Ace pigeons KBDB - run like a thread through the colony. The succession seems assured, with a few new long distance cracks that have meanwhile made the "move" from the racing loft to the breeding loft. We would like to introduce 2 of them to you… not just any old one. Both are from the excellent Ike dynasty.

The number of breeding cocks in the Chris Hebberecht breeding stable with a National Ace Pigeon title to their name was further increased with Falco - a half-brother of Ike - who reached the national podium in 2017. Just like his half-brother Ike, he comes from Jempy coupled to a hen from Jos Joosen from his golden Bonga line.

Lord and Falco have joined the rich breeding stable of Chris Hebberecht in recent years, as a new switch for the future. Together with one of the protagonists from 2020, De Marseille.

1e National Marseille 2020

In 2020 Chris Hebberecht managed to win the second national victory of his career, after St. Vincent in 2013. He has been close to it so many times, although the circumstances must always be right. Although they certainly did not have it with Marseille in 2020. The location, mass of the pigeons and the weather conditions (with a lot of NNW in the wind above Paris, later turning to WNW) were anything but in favor of the west of the country . Hence the admiration for the hitter of Chris Hebberecht who shook a pure piece of showmanship from his wings by winning the 1st National Marseille here on the west side of the country… all alone. A true race "home alone."

The protagonists in winning the 2020 title

The topper of the long distance team in 2020 was without a doubt Neko, a hitter who managed to win several ace pigeon titles… and is one of the reasons for winning the title in the KBDB championships at the provincial and national level. The ultimate reward for a mighty racing season.

Top on the races from the Rhone Valley

Chris Hebberecht also knows how to hold his own on the races of the Rhone Valley. He has a separate team for that. Their achievements deserve a big "award" in the report. In addition to the national victory from Marseille, these hitters also performed excellently from both Valence and Montélimar. Then Rhone topper Nacho BE16-4130153 was always the first in the clock. In 2019 he also successfully rolled off the duo Valence-Montélimar, and also won an early prize from Valence in 2018. His honors list includes:

-Nacho BE16-4130153

 70. Nat Valence 7.591 p. ’20 – 5. Nat Zone 859 p.
430. Nat Montélimar ’20 – 1. Prize local 40 p.
 73. Nat Libourne 4.605 p. ’19
215. Nat Tulle 4.169 p. ’18
313. Nat Valence 7.682 p. ’18

This Nacho is a pigeon from the core lines of the Chris Hebberecht coloy. His father is a full brother of Brother Jempy BE10-4327607  and also halfbrother of Champion (Jempy is father of Ike: 1. Nat Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2010… Champion was 1. Prov and 2. Nat Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2005) x Daughter Jaws BE11-4090170 (Jaws was 3. Nat Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2010, and won 7 x 1e prize and 8. Nat Brive 17.456 p., 12. Nat Souillac 3.290 p., 26. Nat Cahors 8.651 p., 32. Nat Souillac 7.039 .)

This Nacho also contributed to the national title won in the KBDB.

Top references in other lofts in 2020

The strength of a colony is not only measured by performances in its own loft. When fellow fanciers also succeed with your pigeons, this once again proves the breeding value and hereditary strength of your own pigeon stock. The Hebberecht pigeons have already performed well in this area, and are the basis for great performances, national victories, prominent title wins, victories and top performances in one-loft races… and so much more. The inbred Hebberecht stock is ideal crossing material in many other top lofts. A lot of references in that area lie ahead ... we limit ourselves here to the main new references from 2020:

-Luc Odeurs from St-Truiden won 1e national Barcelona 6.178 pigeons and also won the
Golden Wing. The father of this winner is 100 % Hebberecht inbred to “Pancho”
-Nicky Campbell from U.K. won 1e  Fougeres (587 km) Zone Section L.  1160 pigeons winner
comes from two direct Hebberecht pigeons line -  Ike -Champion – Pancho – Sparky
-Wilfried Vandemaele from Heule won the Best Yearling Pigeon with 4 prizes on all Belgian One Day Long Distance races. The mother comes directly from Hebberecht from Beauty ( from son Champion X daughter Harry) x Vuil Blauwke ( from Schalie Gevaert -Lannoo x Bl. Steveninck)
-Rida Paloma Loft won the 1e prize in theFinal race Costa de la Luz 589 pigeons with 5 minute lead. The mother is 100% Hebberecht pigeon and comes from Jempy X daughter Champion
-Jos & Jan Loobuyck from Aalter won 2e prize International Agen vs. 15271 pigeons we find in both the father and mother Hebberecht-pigeons. Lines of Axl – Ike – Champion – Panda – Trojaan
-Etienne Meirlaen from St. Martens Latem won 2e prize in the final race Montpellier (518 km)
Derby del Mediterranian O.L.R. The father of the winning pigeon comes from co-breeding with his Montali  coupled to a Hebberecht pigeon with a daughter of Hulk x Ike’s Darling

Hebberecht pigeons are world class

To manage a top season yourself - crowned with a national victory and KBDB titles up to the national level - and on top of that receive a lot of nice references from fellow sportsmen worldwide, who achieve top successes with your pigeons. It is not surprising that Chris Hebberecht is delighted with the 2020 racing season… it is also proof that the modern Hebberecht pigeon still stands for top class. A status for which these pigeons enjoy world fame.
