Peter Janssen leading the race, it is starting to become a common sight, but that does not make his achievements any less impressive. He amazes his opponents time and time again with marvellous results, and he has had some very successful races again this season. We take a look at the first six races of 2018, taking into account only his very best results:
14/04/18 Heusden-Zolder Prov. 9 138 km 24,560 p.: 2-3-20-21-41-47-71-etc. (34/66) 21/04/18 Bierges Prov. 9 161 km 26,032 p.: 1-4-9-17-18-25-32-51-53- 69-etc. (33/68) 28/04/18 Charleville Prov. 9 249 km 24,437 p.: 10-35-36-56-etc. (31/60) 05/05/18 Laon Prov. 9 299 km 20,235 p.: 3-8-35-79-81-82-etc.(46/56) 12/05/18 Charleville Prov. 9 249 km 22,503 p.: 1-3-13-23-25-31-46-etc. (37/50) 19/05/18 Chalons-en-C.

We think there is a lot to be expected from this team in the upcoming middle distance and one day long distance races. We now take a closer look at the pigeons that have had their share in the team's most recent top results. These are just a few examples; we expect this list to become longer and longer as the season goes on.

Renowned pigeons lead to great results today
A never-ending search for top quality pigeons and Peter's expertise are the foundation for the team's current top results. And time and time again we notice that his latest generation of prize winners is closely related to such renowned breeders as Son Kaasboer, Lord Lohengrin, Euro Junior, Bender, and many others. Needless to say, we expect a lot from the pigeons of grandmaster Peter Janssen in the next few middle distance and long distance races.
