14/06/2012 - Jos Joosen, a big name in international pigeon racing, is the winner of the first classic from the Rhône valley in 2012: the national from Montélimar. Walloon fanciers often describe this race as 'the little Barcelona’, referring to the demanding circumstances during the race.
19/07/2010 - In contrast to what was confirmed to us late last night at 23h15, it is not Adam from Sprimont but Jooosen Jos from Brecht who has won 1st national Belgium. Normally the clubs have to pass on the first reports to the organisation, but at 23h15 the club concerned hadn’t done this (more than 1 hour after the arrival of the pigeon!). NO blame can be laid by Jos Joosen who reported the pigeon immediately and who is the magnificent winner of this Marseille edition 2010. The 2nd international victory in the career of Jos Joosen, after his international Perpignan victory in 2006!
