The least we can say is that Bart and Jurgen have successfully continued the life's work of their father Luc, developing his pigeon collection into a world class pigeon breed. Luc managed to convert his successful sprint and middle distance pigeons into a nationally renowned longer middle distance and light long distance racing team. He has been successful for years by breeding youngsters from the proven first prize winners from his own collection. He then strengthened his foundation by introducing other bloodlines, and this foundation enabled Bart and Jurgen to further increase the level of performance after Luc's early passing.
Bart and Jurgen put in a great effort to follow in the footsteps of their father and mentor Luc and to try and get the most out of his life's work. It appears they have successfully done so, winning several first prizes at provincial and zonal level, and even at national level. Their victories include a 1st Nat. Limoges 2009, a 1st Nat. Argenton 2012, and a 1st and 2nd Nat. Argenton 2013. As a result, they finished 2nd and 9th in the national ace pigeon championship longer middle distance yearlings KBDB 2013. They also made it to the Nitra Olympiad, claiming the title of 1st Olympiad Pigeon All Round 2013. Their impressive list of achievements illustrates what most of us already knew: the Geerinckx pigeons are world class!
There is a good chance that Bart and Jurgen will be invited to Budapest with another Olympiad pigeon: their pigeon Acy has won six top prizes taken into account for the sports category C (Montluçon and Tulle in 2014, Chateauroux, Montluçon and 2 x Argenton in 2013).

She is a highly talented hen and without doubt one of Belgium’s best in the longer middle distance and the light long distance. This impressive crack has everything to represent our country in the Olympiad in January in Budapest, and she is obviously one of the main candidates. We wonder if the fanciers from Wommelgem will soon have to start packing for a trip to Hungary.
