Bernard Lefebre from Zulte had a super season 2022

10 Mar 2023

After his national victory from Souillac, the icing on the cake was for Bernard Lefebre from Zulte in East Flanders. Of course he had another whopper with his other super crack “Opara” who became 2nd National Ace Pigeon All Round olds and yearlings KBDB 2022. This on top of the national victory and 6 X TOP 15 National, we can safely speak of a super season.

Bernard himself has been running a garden center together with his wife for several years, so pigeons are still a pure hobby, despite the fact that he is a fanatical pigeon fancier. As the son of the well-known tandem Lefebre – Dhaenens, he has been involved in the sport from an early age, but now he mainly takes into account the balance between pigeons and family. Chapeau and big kudos for everything because the pigeons are only raced here every 14 days. One weekend counting the pigeons and the next the family. The game with the youngsters is not his preference and training well is enough for him to test them well as a yearling and that has already paid off last season.

For the first time he auctions 2 children from his "Turbo Koppel" together with some special youngsters from his best racers of 2022
