Although many of the loft’s best pigeons have been auctioned recently, this colony has regained its position as a top-class loft in no time. It proves that they have a great selection of top-quality breeders: two times top-five interprovincial old birds and three times top-ten interprovincial yearlings: how about that? These results demonstrate the sheer talent among Rudi’s excellent pigeons.

Good results right from the start of the season
History has shown that the A & R De Saer pigeons are capable of doing anything. This weekend, on the 19th of May, the Inter-West-Flamish Union had a classic coming up: the interprovincial Chateauroux. This race usually has the best grand middle distance and middle distance lofts from West-Flanders as well as some lofts from East-Flanders at the start line. Most of the training races in West-Flanders had unfavourable weather conditions in the beginning of the season. But despite that, there was still a decent number of participants in Chateauroux.
Rudi had 24 old birds and 33 yearlings in the race, all performing very well:
Chateauroux 213 old birds: 1,2,6,8,10,12,13,14,17,20,21,24,26,30,....(20/24) Chateauroux prov. 3486 old birds: 1,5,36,41,50,68,88,89,...(20/24) Chateauroux prov. 885 yearlings: 6,8,9,19,22,31,32,33,64,75,...(22/33)
This was an impressive opener of the season by the dream team from Ruiselede. Many congratulations to Rudi with yet another (inter)provincial win for him.
