Now that fanciers are no longer officially required to keep their birds indoors, everyone is starting to get ready for the first races of the season.

Pigeon fanciers have been racing pigeons from their own lofts for decades. In more recent times, the concept of one loft racing has become increasingly popular. But what if one race was to combine those two forms of pigeon racing? That is exactly what the Barcelona Pigeon Race has in mind for its 2019 edition.
In November 2016 Mike Cooney purchased 32 of the 34 pigeons that Christian van de Wetering had offered for sale, until he sadly passed away last month. The only right thing to do was to reimburse the Cooney family, while PIPA and christian agreed to auction the 32 pigeons a second time. It was an approach that Christian appreciated a lot.
October 2016 saw the unexpected passing of Victor De Belser, marking the end of a successful sprint imperium.

He had numerous top results and titles on his palmares.
