Another successful season for Luc De Roeck (Manage, BE)!

Year in, year out, the De Roeck loft is always considered as one of the very best lofts of the French speaking part of Belgium. This season, Luc was again very successful and he was even very close to winning the national race from Limoges!

The fancier from Manage again won some super results in the national. The seasons are always the same for Luc who is at the head of one of the very best Walloon lofts for more than 20 years. His colony, which is mainly built on his very old strain (Cobut, Mersch, Van Neste, Imbrecht, etc) and on his golden pair, contains some great performers able to achieve some great results each week. Luc is a great expert who knows the character of his pigeons like no one else. That's why he is able to win at the right moment and the reason why his performances are constant. After a successful start to the begining of May, the loft was ready for the first national race of the season, Bourges, with already a top 25 at the national level. But what can we say about the following week: 9th national Châteauroux against 19,663 yearlings and, a few hours later, 2nd national Limoges from 14,271 old birds with the zonal victory in addition! Luc won another national top 10 the following week in one of his favourite races, Montélimar (10th national from 5,952 old birds), while he won another provincial victory from Cahors seven days later!

As always, the descendants of the golden pair showed they were fantastic racers as it was them again who made Luc a very happy man during the first national races. The 2013 season can be considered as a successful one and Luc could surprise us in one of the last longer middle distance races of the season... who knows... with him, nothing is impossible! Congratulations!
