After three nights basket were totaled on Saturday 26 June 2022 in Issoudun (500 km). 20,500 pigeons (8,151 birds & 12,349 yearlings) started at 9:00 a.m. Weather at the high-low: high clouds, no wind, good visibility!
The 83-year-old Romain Van De Geuchte from Deinze confirmed his yearling at 14:37:02 B21-4168961 at a distance of 466.135 km at a speed of 1,383.05 meters/minute. This should be the 2nd national against 12,349 yearlings and third fastest of a total of 20,500 pigeons! At the end of May, this top cock already flew the 795th prize vs. 24,496 yearlings at Bourges National!
The yearling bird B21-4168961 was certainly in good form since he was used as the first nominated! About the pedigree: Father is the bird B19-4083699 comes from the mating Herbots B17-2140263 x B14-2313414 with the female B12-4175458. The mother B16-4073301 comes from A. Vergote B09-4281152 x B09-3045338. As you can see, a lot of blood from former grandmaster Gaby Vandenabeele from Dentergem.
Romain Van De Geuchte is still a “little duivenmelker” with seven breeding pairs and 14 racing birds. With such a small stock, this great success is really impressive!
Amazing Wings once again congratulates Romain and his wife on this great achievement!
