"A very nice reference", admits Kristof. "The winning pigeon is a cross breeding of my own pigeons and the lines of Hugo Batenburg. The mother is a dirtect daughter of the Special One, then paired to a daughter of the New Laureaat. This hen is also mother to my provincial winner on Perigieux that arrived 20 minutes ahead of the second pigeon. It's a great breeding line, and I have a lot of confidence in it.
"The one loft races are booming and for me, participating in these races is just for my pleasure. This one loft race Barcelona UK is a special one because the pigeons you send there are supposed to fly the International Barcelona race when they are 3 years old. If they are still present on the lofts off course... I still have 2 pigeons that are in the running. Hopefully they will survive the season 2022 to make the trip to Spain in 2023. Next year, the Final Race is one of 420 km, I'm already looking forward to it..."
