Freddy & Jacques Vandenheede (Zingem, BE) dominate the race from Limoges with a 1-2-3-4 Provincial yearlings!

In addition, 11 yearlings and one old bird of Vandenheede finished in the national top 100, which is quite exceptional! This was a great performance, and it will make them one of the candidates for winning the national ace pigeon title long distance yearlings KBDB.

This was yet another outstanding achievement by the fanciers from the Heulestraat in Zingem, and the fanciers from around Zingem have seen quite a few remarkable performances by the Vandenheede team in recent seasons already. They have grown accustomed to the Vandenheede pigeeons achieving amazing results, especially in perfect weather conditions. However, last weekend’s result exceeded all expectations: they had no less than 7 old birds (or 50% of all basketed old  birds) in the national top 10, as well as 8 pigeons in the national top 10 yearlings, while also winning the seven first prizes in the club. They have won the four first prizes at provincial level yearlings, resulting in no less than 11 prizes in the national top 100.

The pigeons of Vandenheede have really dominated this race from Limoges, and we included a few results just to illustrate:

Limoges club Gent 90 olds:
1-3-4-5-6-7-9-11-14-15-17-18-20-21 (9/14 per 3)
National 7,221 olds: 27…

Limoges club Gent 155 yearlings:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-9-11-14-15-17-18-20-21-22-23-24… (32/56 per 3-tal)
Provincial 2,195 yearlings: 
National 6,907 yearlings (preliminary results):

This is a magnificent achievement! Their pigeons were clocked from Limoges (626km) as if it were a sprint race. No less than 41 pigeons (9 old birds and 32 yearlings) of a total of 70 basketed pigeons were already clocked by four o’clock in the afternoon. Many fanciers were still waiting for their first pigeons to arrive by the time the fanciers from Zingem were ready to celebrate another brilliant result.

The performance by their team of yearlings opens up possibilities for the national ace pigeon championship long distance KBDB as well, for which your best two results in the long distance are taken into account. Their pigeons have won the first four prizes at provincial level and five prizes in the national top 17, which demonstrates that they have a good collection of highly talented pigeons. It would take them just one more top result from Brive, Jarnac, or Tulle (depending on their schedule) to become one of the main favourites for the national ace pigeon title long distance yearlings.

The stunt team from Limoges

The first two prizes in the yearlings’ race from Limoges were won by two nest brothers, while a younger brother has finished in fifth place in the club. The yearlings that won a 4th and 7th in the club (13th and 36th national) are two full brothers as well, which is remarkable.

Hens in the longer middle distance

The cocks of Vandenheede have been very successful in the long distance competition, but their best results in the longer middle distance have been won by a group of hens. Two of them have won several ace points already, and they will be likely candidates for several ace pigeon championship prizes.

This is an impressive collection of highly talented pigeons, and this overview does not even include their impressive team of old cocks. Their group of highly talented one year old cocks have dominated the race from Limoges, and it seems they are ready to become the next generation of great champions in the near future. The Vandenheede fanciers will expect these pigeons to excel, to dominate, and to win great prizes in the seasons to come!
