Gert Rotman ( NL ) 1st FCI World Ranking 2022 ( after 32 races )

11 Nov 2022

The sensation on the One Loft race flights in 2022 is Gert Rotman from Beuningen in the Netherlands. He won 3 finals in one month and what is even better is that the pigeons also do very well in the regular flights in Belgium and the Netherlands. A unique mix of pigeons that can handle both flights. For the first time Gert brings young pigeons through an internet sale with of course the very best from his colony. Especially 3 children from the OLR Winners of this season and 1 child from his best breeding couples in recent years. Those who want to shine on the OLR flights in the coming years will have the opportunity here.

1st Final OLR Algarve Great Derby 2.063p – 486km  ( 60,000 Euro prize money )
1st Final OLR Autostrada Romania – 435km – 1087 m/min
1st Final OLR Super Star Romania – 420km – 969 m/min
1st Ace Pigeon OLR Autostrada Romania

He already has a good past for the OLR Algarve Great Derby because he already won this edition in 2015 with “Daughter Algarve Couple” and in 2018 he won the 1st Ace pigeon with “White Sensation 662”. In 2016 he won bronze in the final flight so these races are the favorite domain of these pigeons.
