12/01/2016 - The overall prize percentage of Stijn van Laere's racing team in 2015 was an impressive 60%. This can be mainly attributed to his yearlings, since they had an even higher prize percentage of 68%. It goes without saying that Stijn has quite a few invaluable one year olds in his racing loft.
28/06/2013 - Stijn Van Laere gained international acclaim in 2012 when his Bender won the title of First Nat. Ace Pigeon Grand Middle Distance. It seems that the 2013 season will be equally successful, he has won 22 first prizes already. The Van Laere pigeons have been the talk of the town lately.
03/11/2012 - This is the third year in a row that the PIPA Elite Center (PEC) of Nikolaas Gyselbrecht managed to obtain the first National Ace Pigeon Extreme Middle Distance. They were able to keep Bender, the champion of 2012, in Belgian hands!
14/01/2012 - Whoever is shown the results from Stijn Van Laere will think they are sitting at the table with the national champion middle distance instead of the national youth champion KBDB 2011. Simply because there are not many fanciers at national level who can produce such a series of chain results… Stijn is not described in the region as the 'steamroller' out Kruishoutem for nothing!
