21/03/2020 - The combination from Holsbeek excelled again in 2019. Their season highlights included a widely predicted national victory from Montluçon, as well as a title of 8th National Ace Pigeon longer middle distance KBDB YLs 2019.
17/07/2019 - A few weeks ago, right after their incredible provincial top result from Blois, we wrote that their team was strong enough to claim a national first prize sooner or later, and look what happens: just 14 days later they take a coveted national victory from Montluçon of 14,104 yearlings.
25/06/2019 - This was perhaps a result that was bound to come, because the pigeons of the Jespers-Vanderwegen combination from Holsbeek had been in great form for a number of weeks now. They claimed quite a few top results over the past several weeks, and this provincial victory was almost inevitable. The race from Blois was in fact a major success across the board.
28/02/2019 - Sunday was the closing day for 10 different auctions, in which 215 were put up for auction. They raised 389,725 euro together, with an average sale price of 1,812 euro per bird. We briefly discuss each individual auction below.
11/02/2019 - After a briljant 2017 season with three provincial first prizes, the fanciers from Holsbeek did not really know what to expect of 2018. Their provincial first prize from Blois on 22nd of July put their minds at ease, and the remainder of the 2018 season was quite a success as well, as you can tell from the following report.
03/09/2018 - The Franco-Belge time trial race was launched a few years back to substitute for the cancelled time trail flight on the Mont Ventoux, in memory of Danny Van Bael and Frans Rans. The Franco Belge time trail is not quite as reputable as the race from Mont Ventoux just yet but that is about to change soon, with an increasing number of renowned players taking part.
03/08/2018 - This provincial first prize is definitely not the first major result for the team from Holsbeek, Flemish Brabant. Herman and Johny have been doing really well in the longer middle distance in recent years, claiming several top prizes and even provincial first prizes.
03/10/2017 - The name of Jespers-Vanderwegen is inevitably linked with Kleine Dirk, as Hermand and Johny have managed to excel many seasons in a row with their Kleine Dirk descendants. Their stock breeder allowed the combination from Holsbeek to win several top results again this season, including three provincial first prizes.
