The “3034418-07” from Jozef Planckaert from Harelbeke won 1st provincial Narbonne in West-Flanders , 2nd national against 6330p and 3rd international.

It is not the first time that Jozef Planckaert has won the provincial victory in the coast province from Narbonne (854 km for him). In 2005 his “3061315-04” won thee 1st prov. Narbonne yearlings and the 4th national against 4664 pigeons.

Jozef, who can look back at a successful pigeon sport career, has been a fancier now for 55 years. Whilst in the nineties his preference was for the sprint and middle distance, after that he started concentrating on the long distance and grand distance and in these distances he races as of old, like a great champion. A champion with a small basket, but exceptionally good pigeons.
