Adrien Mirabelle (BE) – Auction of the best racers & breeders

From the 5th of December until the Sunday 18th of December the auction of the best racers & breeders of Adrien Mirabelle will be held on PIPA.

Despite his fairly young age (34 years), Adrien already spent the biggest part of his life involved in the pigeon sport since his first license was taken in 1999. He is the fourth generation of pigeon fancier in his family. He also works full time in the pigeon sport since 2013 combining the daily management of his pigeons to his activities at PIPA.

This long period of activities into our sport allowed him to travel the world and to meet passionate pigeon fanciers from different cultures and it is in fact what he has appreciated the most from his job. As a father of two young children, he started however to feel a mental tiredness and expressed the will to take a step back from racing since he is racing without the help of anyone.
Private events that occurred this year also pushed him to make choice, the decision to reduce the size of his living stock was ineluctable. The best racers & the best breeders born between 2011 and 2019 will be auctioned on PIPA with a group of pigeons born in 2022.

We must underline that Adrien will take part in competition in 2023 but it will be a year of transition without any kind of pression.

His performances

Adrien first came under the spotlights in 2014 when he won with his grandfather the double title of 1. National Champion Middle Distance KBDB & 1. National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance KBDB (‘Zodiac’) but also 4. National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance KBDB (‘Divock’) & 10. National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance KBDB (‘Cartouche’). He is racing on his own since 2015 and the next year, he did it again with a brand-new title of 1. National Champion Middle Distance KBDB winning at the same time an incredible collection of acebirds : 3. - 5. & 8. National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance old birds KBDB (‘Calvin’, ‘Lewis’ & ‘Shogun’) and 5. & 6. National Ace Pigeon Middle Distance Yearlings KBDB. He raced on the same level the next years winning several titles of champion at various level with provincial & interprovincial victories as well as impressive series of arrivals against several thousands of pigeons. He also showed the worth of his pigeons in various One Loft Races with already several top performances since his first participation on this type of competition in 2016:

1st prize final race Moledo Atlantic Coast 2021 (Portugal)
1st prize semi-final Moledo Atlantic Coast 2022 (Portugal)
1st prize Hot Spot II Polish Masters 2022 (Poland)
2nd prize semi-final Algarve Golden Race 2017 (Portugal)
4th prize Hot Spot III Polish Masters 2022 (Poland)
4th General Acebird Polish Masters 2022 (Poland)
