Loft of Jos Vercammen (Vremde, BE) overwhelmingly successful in Limoges II

This was another exciting weekend, with two releases on 5 and 6 July. The pigeons from Limoges II were eventually released on Monday, after spending five days in the basket. That did not seem to bother the pigeons of Jos and Lars Vercammen, who won the first three prizes in the old birds’ race, as well as the two first prizes in the yearlings’ category. Jos and Lars had the five fastest pigeons in the province of Antwerp!

The loft of Jos Vercammen had no mercy for for its opponents from Antwerp in the race from Limoges II, and the result was an impressive double victory. This is quite an achievement!

Limoges II 517 old birds: 1 - 2 - 3 - 11 - 28 - 34 - 50 - 72 - 96 - 118 (10/11)
Limoges II 634 yearlings: 1 - 2 - 11 - 16 - 41 - 62 - 90 - 139 - 211 (9/11)

An impressive team of old birds

This is not the first overwhelming result of the fanciers from Vremde this season. They have basically dominated the season at provincial level, and their pigeons will have a good chance of winning a number of championship titles. Their best pigeons Turbo has become one of the favourites for the national title of Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB - he needs just one more top result. You can find the pedigree of Turbo BE12-6196094 here

Turbo, winner of the old birds' race from Limoges II, has had quite a seaon already:

1st Provincial Limoges II (675km) 517 p. 
2nd Provincial Salbris (454km) 769 p.
3rd Provincial Limoges I (675km) 1,417 p. 

These are the two results that have made Turbo one of the contenders for the title of Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB:

3rd provinicial Limoges I (1,417 p.)
1st Zone Limoges II (2,174 p.) - he has an impressive coefficient of 0.258!


Turbo, 1st provincial Limoges II

The pigeon that finished in second place at provincial level deserves a mention as well. Lotus (Click here for the pedigree of Lotus BE12-6196084) has showed his potential in a number of races already, winning the following prizes:

Tulle
1st Club 149 p. 
2nd Provincial 847 p.
6th National 6,972 p.

Limoges
2nd Provincial 517 p. 

Issoudun
16th National z. 1,182 p.
38th National 5,670 p.

Poitiers
49th National z. 2,538 p.

La Souterraine
76th National z. 2,246 p.


Lotus, 2nd provincial Limoges II

To conclude, the winner of a 3rd provincial Limoges II old birds is Brazil (you can find the pedigree of Brazil BE12-6196060). He is a direct son of Beckham and a grandson of Barco, just like their first two yearlings.



Brazil, 3rd provincial Limoges II
 

This is the list of achievements of Brazil up to now:

24th National Tulle (657km) 6,972 p. 
3rd Provincial Limoges (675km) 517 p. (beaten by two loft mates)
55th National z. Poitiers (617km) 2,108 p. 
9th Vierzon (476km) 627 p. 
10th Chateauroux (527km) 520 p. 
14th Argenton (555km) 459 p. 

The old birds have demonstrated their great form this season, and they obviously deserve their place in this loft. We expect them to perform equally well in the races to come.

An impressive team of yearlings

The first and second provincial in the yearlings’ race belong to the loft of Jos and Lars Vercammen as well. Origi (click here for the pedigree of Origi BE13-6026050) was the fastest yearling in the loft, and he originates from several great champions. The dam of Origi is a direct daughter of their amazing breeder Barco (click here for the pedigree of Barco BE01-6387350),  which has bred quite a few successful pigeons already. He is related to the renowned line of Mambo from his father’s side, a bloodline that is particularly successful in the long distance competition. Super Lady, which was bred from a full sister of Mambo, has won a 1st provincial (and 6th national 3,868 p.) from Montélimar, another great result for the line of Mambo.


Origi, 1st provincial yearlings Limoges II

The 2nd provincial yearling from Limoges II is Hulk (you can find the pedigree of Hulk BE13-6026138 here). He is a grandson of Barco via his father, which has won a 19th nat. Tulle (6,972 p.), and which is still part of the racing team. The dam of Hulk is a full sister of Alladin (you can find the pedigree of Alladin BE09-6248081 here), a successful pigeon and winner of a 1st national Bourges (64,621 p.). Hulk had already won a 1st Poitiers against 394 pigeons in the club, as well asn 18th national zone from Poitiers against 2,708 p.)



Hulk, a pigeon with great potential

Their five best old birds and yearlings are all related to each other in some way or other. They originate from the lines of Mambo, Barco, Leeuw, or Beckham, each of which are top quality breeders. These bloodlines can be easily combined and they allow for great pairings. The descendants of these pairings are pigeons you can rely on in the important moments. In fact, the pigeons of Jos and Lars Vercammen perform remarkably well in the most demanding weather conditions. It seems they like to work hard and they fly really well in strong headwinds.

They continue to win top prizes one after the other, and this is obviously the work of a well organised team with a collection of great pigeons. A top quality pigeon collection is key, as well as a fancier who knows his job. Other lofts have been doing great with their pigeons as well. In the meantime, the fanciers from Vremde have started to focus their attention on the one day long distance races, including Souillac and Brive. These races will be the next goal, especially because it appears that these races are well within the possibilities of their pigeons. The Vercammen fanciers are obviously really fond of keeping pigeons, because they always basket pigeons throughout the season, from the first races in April all the way to the Tour of Belgium in October. We can imagine their excellent results will stimulate them to continue on the same course.


The lofts in Vremde

Many congratulations on this remarkable performance from Limoges II and all the other great results of 2014. Good luck for the rest of the season!
