We paid a visit to the loft of Paul and Jelle Roziers from Bevel shortly before the national race from. At the time their young birds were really dominating the competition. Click here to reread our previous report. It seems their pigeons have not slowed down in the last two national races:

We have taken a closer look at the overall performance of the Roziers pigeons in the seven national races and the results were impressive: the seven national races were completed by the same team of young birds. They covered 3,720 km in six weeks' time against an average of 14,700 pigeons. Paul and Jelle have won the following prizes:

The following video clearly shows that they are fanciers with a professional approach and they leave nothing to chance. They use an interesting method to preven their pigeons from wasting time outside the loft.
