A great result from Fontenay for Gevaert-Lannoo (Meigem, BE)

The successful combination from Meigem-Deinze was well prepared for the first important race in the shorter middle distance. They win a first, second and third prize from Fontenay, with no less than 7 pigeons in the top 10. Well done!

The Gevaert-Lannoo fanciers offered their entire racing team for sale in the end of 2016, and their number one objective for the upcoming 2017 season would be to develop a new racing team for the future. A collection of 2016 summer youngsters were summoned to bring results in the upcoming seasons. These pigeons did no more than a few shorter training flights as youngsters, and afterwards about 12 pairs were selected for total widowhood.
People assumed that Paul and Carlos would have to take a step back after their auction, but they were proven wrong after the first important longer middle distance race of 2017. The Gevaert-Lannoo pigeons showed to be in excellent form, with an excellent overall performance:

Fontenay 263 yearlings: 1-2-3-5-6-7-9-11-13-15-25-26-27-38-39-44-75 (17/23)

The pigeons that won a 1st and 2nd prize are in fact a nest brother and nest sister; they are a full brother and sister of the talented hen Platina, 1st Prov. and 5th Nat. Ace Pigeon Middle Distance KBDB.

Paul and Carlos discover some highly talented newcomers in their team of summer youngsters almost every single season, bred from the very best pairs of their invaluable team of breeders. This year's race from Fontenay seems to indicate that they have a few future champions among their racing birds as well. The classics of the longer middle distance, their favourite competition, will be an excellent opportunity for this young and still fairly inexperienced racing team to further unlock their potential. The pigeons of Gevaert-Lannoo are ready for some fierce competition.
