Gevaert-Lannoo (Meigem, BE) close a great season with a provincial win from Chateauroux III olds

Their provincial first prize from Chateauroux III, the last national race of 2016, adds to a total of 3 provincial first prizes and 3 provincial second prize. The team has had a wonderful season indeed.

The pigeons of Gevaert-Lannoo have been on a winning streak this summer, winning first prizes in the club on a weekly basis. They have obviously won quite a number of provincial, zonal and national top prizes as well, with an impressive 2 first and 3 second provincial prizes in July alone. Click here to reread the report that we published in July. They have continued to win first prizes in the club, and the team won their third provincial first prize of 2016 in Chateauroux III with the old birds.
