Hebberecht Chris, "General Champion 'Belgische Verstandhouding' (2007)"

Chris HEBBERECHT, Evergem  (BE)
General Champion 'Belgische Verstandhouding' 2007
1st National Ace pigeon Cureghem Centre 2007
1st Long Distance Champion 'Belgian Flying Cup' 2007


Add to the above the following titles:
1st Ace Pigeon Long Distance club Lokeren,
2nd General Champion 'Les amis du grand Fond',
2nd Interprovincial Champion FVOV,
4th + 5th Provincial Ace Pigeon Long Distance KDBD East-Fl 2007…

we don't have to draw a picture to explain how Chris has… despite the interruption in the Long Distance season due to the bird flu… once again achieved a 'top year'. It seems like Chris has a patent on the collecting of 'prominent titles', gaining 'provincial and national Ace Pigeons', provincial victories and national top prizes. Let's limit ourselves, so that we don't fall into recurrence, to the most recent national titles that the Hebberecht colony have added to their name, along with these from 2007:

" 1st National Ace Pigeon Grand Distance KBDB 2005
" 1st National Ace Pigeon Old Cureghem-centre 2007
" 1st National Champion 'Belgische Verstandhouding' 2005 & 2007
" 1st National Champion Criterium der Azen 2004 & 2005
" 2nd National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2005
" 2nd National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2004
" 2nd National Champion Grand Distance KBDB 2004
" 2nd National Champion Long Distance KBDB 2004
" 5th National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2004
" 10th National Champion Grand Distance KBDB 2005
" Best fancier of the year 2007 in the One-day Long Distance (BFC-cup)

There has been so much said and written this last season about the top successes of Chris Hebberecht, his ways and means (care method), for which we would like to refer you to our previous articles,… that here we are going to limit ourselves to the breeding basis and the 'new toppers' of the loft.

Stock building
The success line that plays the 'leading role' in the achievement of this series of prominent titles and Ace Pigeons stems mainly from the super breeder De Fijnen from 1984.
De Fijnen won 1st Chateauroux (499 km) 414 pigeons and 1st regional + 36th national Perpignan (940 km) 2.639 pigeons.
His father, de Pallieter, also won 1st prize Poitiers 156 pigeons, and 31st national Limoges (612 km) 5.947 pigeons. De Pallieter is a son of the Korporaal, who won 14th national Tulle 3.148 pigeons. The 'flying at the front' seems to be anchored in the genes, and carries on 'dominantly' from generation to generation! A 'quality' not to be scorned at for the stock building, and without doubt the basis of the 'top performances' this last season!


De FIJNEN was himself father of 3 different 1st provincial winners:
" De Wittestaart: 1st provincial Argenton (528 km) 3.612 pigeons
" De Bjorn: 1st Provincial Narbonne 726 pigeons
De BJORN is father of :
- POKEMON or the 1st Prov Brive 3.399 p (2001)
- JELLE or the 1st Prov Perpignan 1.065 p (2000) In addition he is grandfather of TALIS or the 1st Prov and 1st Semi-Nat La Souterraine 5.520 p (2001) and of PANCHO or the 2nd National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB 2004… and great-grandfather of the CHAMPION or the 2nd National Ace Pigeon Long Distance KDBD 2005!
At the moment more than 17 pigeons that have raced in the Top 100 national stem out the Bjorn-line! What a 'dominant breeding line'!
" De Raket: 1st provincial Cahors (753 km) 1.303 pigeons.
De Raket is grandfather of the Super.
This Super is father of: -the Gentleman, who, including other things, won 6th Internat. Dax 17 430 pigeons (897 km), 47th Nat. Bordeaux 7519 pigeons (768 km) etc...
-the Galanten (nest brother Gentleman), won amongst other things the 14th nat. Souillac (710 km) 7.358 pigeons, 70th nat. La Souterraine 5466 pigeons.
The Galanten is in turn father of Tarzan, the 5th National Ace Pigeon KBDB Long Distance 2004.
-the Talis, or the winner 1st Semi-National La Souterraine in 2001
-Zwart Geschelpt (Black chequered) 491-95.
This hen is the mother of the PANCHO or the 2nd National Ace Pigeon KBDB Long Distance 2004, and maybe one of the best racing pigeons ever in the lofts of Chris Hebberecht.
He won amongst other things 2 x 1st provincial, 1x 2nd provincial, 2nd Nat. Beziers 5.886 pigeons, 6th Nat. Brive 7.446 pigeons, 12th Nat. Brive 19.477 pigeons, 47th Nat. Cahors 7.342 pigeons, ..
-Zwart Geschelpt 489-95 is mother of the Chequered Kathy, top breeder by Raoul en Xavier Verstraete (mother of TOPSTAR).
She is also mother of Ambiorix, 19th Nat.Barcelona 2005. (1091 km)
-Zwarte Vereecke (Black Vereecke): this top breeder, originating from Roger Vereecke, Deerlijk, was crossed with old stock pigeons.
This turned out to be a direct hit, resulting in numerous super pigeons.
Here a summary:
" The mother of Bjorn is a daughter of the Zwarte Vereecke. So as mentioned above, this Bjorn is the current sock father.
" The mother of the Raket, who is a half-brother of Bjorn is also a daughter of Zwarte Vereecke.
" The father of Lobke is a son of the Zwarte Vereecke.
" Lobke is the father of Schonen Zwarten, who is father of Champion (1st Prov + 2nd Nat Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB), Bruce and Tibor.
" Zwarte Vereecke is father of Vedette, who won amongst other things the 49th Nat. Brive 23.142 pigeons and the 75th Nat. Beziers 6522 pigeons.
This Vedette is also father of, amongst others, Bonno, Achthonderd and Spirit.

The new generation of top racers
Performing at such a high level year after year and especially continuing to perform is no easy task. Particularly when you know that the National Ace pigeons (the absolute toppers at the time) were repeatedly taken out of the racing team. Pancho was sold, but Tarzan, Champion, Gentleman, Axl etc… were placed directly in the breeding loft after their exploits. A blood-letting in the racing team (and this in hardly 2 years time) that many Long Distance fanciers wouldn't recover from. So as proved in the above mentioned series of champion titles, such interventions hardly had any effect on the performance nouveau of the Hebberecht team. Which proves once again that every year multiple real 'crack pigeons' are bred and this is anything but simple. Allow us to introduce you to a few of the 'crack pigeons' in the new collection:

In short, a superior team of racing pigeons who are ready for 2008 to perform superbly in the Long Distance and Grand Distance, and who in 2007 were at the basis of the powerful series of titles and Ace pigeons which the colony Chris Hebberecht once again achieved in their 'devastating' manner. Performances that have allowed Chris Hebberecht to grow into a fixed value at the absolute top of our Belgian pigeon sport, and this both in National and International races!
