Barcelona, the dream of many
Who does not dream of winning the queen's race from Barcelona one day? It is a fact that you need a specific type of bird for this event. A highly talented pigeon that combines endurance with great determnation. It takes years to develop a pigeon family with this type of pigeons, as well as great patience and an elaborate breeding strategy. Well, this PIPA quiz could make things a bit easier for you on your way to achieving your dream! The main prize in our quiz is none other than a grandchild of New Laureaat. Take a look at the pedigree of New Laureaat's granddaughter, which you can win in our quiz.
New Laureaat claimed a 1st International Barcelona for Luc Wiels in 2013, and he is a great-grandchild of another famous Barcelona bird: Laureaat Barcelona, 1st International Barcelona 1995 for the Gyselbrecht family. New Laureaat, as well as the grandchild that you can win, comes from a highly successful pigeon family indeed.

Ad Fortuin wins 3rd International Agen with grandchild New Laureaat
A granddaughter of New Laureaat showed her potential just last weekend, in the international race from Agen. And Ad Fortuin (Strijen, NL) wins a 3rd International with Miss New Laureaat. Agen was quite a demanding race as well due to the high temperatures and a strong wind, which explains why the strongest long distance pigeons called the shots that day.
