Jackie – Leen De Bruine from Niewerkerk ( NL ) have 2 golden bloodlines from Barcelona with “El Cid” and “Mr.Fit Barcelona”

16 Jan 2022

If we look at Barcelona in the Netherlands over several years, Jackie & Leen De Bruine are surely one of the best Barcelona lofts out there. Getting to the top and then standing there is the hardest thing there is.

2018 : 1st National Barcelona 3,912b ( 4th International 15,707b ) with “El Cid”
2019 : 2 Nat Barcelona 4,132b ( 8th International 15,981b ) met “Mr.Fit Barcelona”
2021 : 14th Nat Barcelona 4.919d with Granddaughter El Cid
            48th Nat Barcelona 4.919d with niece El Cid 

Back to 2018 where the unique story started, around 13h02 they clocked NL 15-3537577 “El Cid” who became after a two hour wait the 1st National Barcelona. This over a distance of 1151km and in very though circumstances. On an international level he became the 4th against 15,700 pigeons. “El Cid” was a pigeon bred by Walter van der Meulen where they work closely together with, which will become more clear in the article of Walter tomorrow. 

One year later we go to the edition of Barcelona 2019. An even tougher one as the former year and now they clocked at 14h50. At that moment it was the 2nd National which would stay like that, on an international level ‘Mr.Fit Barcelona’ ends at the 8th place against 15,981 pigeons. An unique double when you have 2 shining years after each other. 

Of course it didn't just stop with the 2nd National in 2019, he also clocked 25th , 154th , 202nd , 233rd , 249th , 287th National and with 11 prizes out of 20 an excellent result.

Barcelona 2021

Now in the last edition of 2021 it was hit again. They clocked at 8.40 am and 9.26 am, these 2 top pigeons were good for 14th and 47th National Barcelona against 4,838 pigeons in again very difficult conditions.

The 1st pigeon is a daughter of “Barcakid 4”. He in turn is a son of “El Cid” 1st National Barcelona ’18 3,912 pigeons. The mother of is "Super 836", a direct PWA Van der Meulen and daughter of "Stamvader 823/05". Several super pigeons have come out of this class pigeon in recent years.
