Noël Peiren (Zedelgem, BE) wins 1st National Barcelona like a true Flandrien

Noël Peiren has won one of the, if not the most important victory in his career as a fancier with his Blauw Duivinnetje, a pigeon small in size yet really strong and determined.

A Barcelona for hard workers, for true Flandriens

A real Flandrien is a man of steel, who will never give up and is never afraid to work hard. This also applies to Noël Peiren's fresh winner from Barcelona. After all, this was a really demanding race from Barcelona. Probably not the hardest ever, because pigeons could benefit from the wind that was coming from southerly and southeasterly direction. However, we think this might have been the hottest edition ever, with temperatures rising up to 35°C and more on Friday. This is probably why only one single pigeon managed to get home on Friday. This was in a loft close to the sea, where temperatures were 10°C lower compared to a few kilometres inland. Did this pigeon fly along the coastline, to be able to continue flying? That might well be the case.

The truth is that the majority of the pigeons has probably taken a long break in the hot afternoon. They have likely covered a few more kilometres in the evening, before taking the final trip home in the early morning, with enough energy left in the tank. We heard that most of the racing birds from Barcelona appeared to be quite fresh by the time they arrived home, which indicates that they landed fairly early on the first day, instead of wasting energy in the heat. The pigeons that did continue to fly despite the temperatures might have actually lost a lot of time. The result was that most fanciers had to wait long before their first pigeons were home, and it took a while before pigeons started to come home one after the other. Most of them were probably still far away from home on Saturday morning.

Long distance star Noël Peiren takes the win

Does Noël Peiren still need an introduction? He is a multiple national champion KBDB, multiple national winner, and he has won a truckload of provincial and club level victories, both in the long distance and the extreme long distance. He is a super class champion who knows when to be in great form: in the most demanding races.

This national first prize from Barcelona was probably the last thing still missing on Noel's palmares. He clocked his blue coloured hen at 8:05'31", after completing 1082.978km with a velocity of 984.96 m/min.

An exceptional Barcelona pigeon with a great palmares:

This was the second race from Barcelona for the winning hen. She only competed in races of up to 500km until the age of two, after which she became a widower hen for one season. Noël reckoned that this small but strong hen might prove useful in his extreme long distance racing team. Her victory from Barcelona proved him right; thsi fancier knows what he's doing. She competed in two national races in the longer middle distance (Bourges and Gueret) to prepare for the season. She was basketed with eggs, after having brooded for a week.

The national first prize from this blue coloured hen was the first of several top results from this hot Barcelona race. This is their overall result:

Barcelona club 292 olds:
1-4-12-17-27-32-44-71-72-91 (10/22)
Prov 1,179 olds:
1-5-26-44-64-99-115-159-244-246-316-361 (12/22)
Nat 7,835 olds: 1-11-91… (preliminary results)

Peiren pigeons can take a beating. They are made of steel, and they get strong by working hard in the national and international classics in the summer. They spend the winter in an open loft, exposed to the elements, to increase natural resistance. This is how many racing birds were raised in the old days as well. This is an approach that Noël learned when he awaited the pigeons of the Catrysse brothers (Moere, BE) as a youngster. He also started to visit the greatest champions in his area, as well as successful fanciers from abroad. He noticed that most of these lofts had something in common: the fanciers that had been successful for many years all relied on a breed of really strong pigeons. He saw this in the loft of his father Georges Peiren as well. He grew up in the loft of his successful father, among many top class pigeons. He managed to follow in his footsteps, and to become a successful fancier himself!

Noël has won everything there is to win, and has won many national championship prizes. Still, this national prize from Barcelona is probably the greatest win in his entire career. It is a crowning achievement for him, many congratulations!

proficiat Noel .
Gij zijt de beste
mvg roger

wat een prachtige overwinning dikke proficiat

Proficiat Noël met deze overwinning !!
Ik heb destijds de film gezien die de "Koerier" van u maakte ... dat was genieten en nog als ik hem bekijk.
Recht toe ... recht aan .
En vooral uw eerlijkheid ... een slechte met een super stamboom blijft voor u gewoon een "SLECHTE" en verdwijnt in uw "stoof" ... en niet op het internet.

Veel succes verder.

Dag Noël en echtgenote ,

Wat 'n prestatie !!! Vanuit Geel een dikke , dikke proficiat met deze prestatie . Zelf heb ik het geluk gehad om Peiren-duiven hier in Geel te hebben zitten en ... het resultaat weet waarschijnlijk heel België : Miss Perpignan 3067067/2002 werd een "fenomeentje "die het schopte tot de beste op 2 jaar , de beste op 3 jaar ( zelfs 2X ) en zelfs Primus interparis , de beste over 5 jaar . Zij zit hier nu te genieten van welverdiende rust , maar presteerde dit alles nog op 10-jarige leeftijd , om te zeggen dat de Peiren-duiven tot veel , héél veel in staat zijn !!
Brei er gerust nog een vervolg aan , het is jullie van harte gegund . Eeerlijke , gewone mensen met een groot hart en ... nog veel beter duiven !!
Raf , Lars en Mieke Luyckx Geel

Lokaal: 1-4-9-13-18-28-33-45-72-73-92 van 292 duiven

Inderdaad "de kroon op het werk" is nu gezet en nu kan je" rustig afbouwen" om dan iedereen weer te verrassen met een nieuwe topprestatie.....
Het was een editie op het sterke lijf geschreven van de Peiren duiven....dus bij ons was je dan ook één der top favorieten maar het dan ook nog waarmaken is enkel weggelegd voor de allergrootsten....en jij past perfect in dat rijtje...
