Oliviers – Devos, Kumtich is working on his way to the top of the extreme long distance in becoming the 1st Champion Brabant Long Distance club 2020

28 Feb 2021

On the extreme long distance race there are 6 to 8 weeks that are important and the weeks of the truth, you don’t have that much opportunities and you have to take them when you can. For the tandem Oliviers – Devos out of the Flemish Brabant city Kumtich this was certainly the case as he showed himself every week. On Marseille he had 2 pigeons within the 1st 150 National, on Barcelona 2 pigeons within the 1st 65 National, Narbonne year birds beginning with the 10th National and 2x Top 60 National. Really amazing and when you read this article you will notice that the strategy make sense and works out. An iron strong base accomplished with the best of the best. 

Base breeders 

They started off with pigeons from Steketee, these were off an iron strong kind and especially suitable to set top results in very hard weather. One of the base breeders and also one of the best racers was BE98-2385603 “Steketee 603”. He won in his career no less than 6x TOP 100 National with ao. the 18th National St. Vincent 1,699b – 25th Nat Pau 2,560b – 33rd Nat Dax 4,772b – 59th Nat Pau 2,567b – 80th Nat Perpignan 7,198b – 95th Nat Marseille 4,093b. A real top pigeon who also became the 1st Ace bird Brabant Union and Ave Regina in 2002, after that he moved to the breeding loft and until now, 22 years later, you can still find this pigeon in the current top pigeons on the loft. Or how one pigeon can have an amazing impact on your career. 

The current best grandson on the breeding loft is “BE10-2195066” Superkweker 066
He became the past years father to:  
BE 19-2086200 “Jari” 10th National Narbonne 4,120b
BE 17-2028056 “Doku” 61st National Barcelona 6,178b
BE 17-2028055 “Nestbroer Doku” 73rd National Marseille 2,239b 

Another top pigeon is BE08-2090302 “De Gaston”, bred out of a granddaughter ‘Steketee 603’ together with a cock of Eric Herbots. He repeated 10 years later what his predecessor did and also became 2nd Provincial Ace bird extreme long distance and was one of the ace birds Brabant Union Extreme Long Distance. He won ao: 87th Nat. 6,681b and 132nd Nat Barcelona 11,560b in that same year. 

In the meantime he already became father and grandfather to several different top pigeons: 
BE 14-2312094 “De 094” won 33rd Nat Narbonne 3,506b – 65th Nat Barcelona 7,301b
