Van den Abbeel - Van Paesschen from Lebbeke - It all started with the national ace birds 'Greg' - 'Sagan' and 'Nafi'

Let's go back to 2017, the year that they raced for the first time under their own name and placed their focus on the national races with the young birds. When you then realize after that season that you have 2 National Ace birds great middle distance with the young birds and the 1st and 3rd Best young bird of Belgium over 4 races you can say you had a super season, one that no one expected.
Let's start off with the first super star of this colony.
