The best pigeon-fanciers in the Belgian pigeon sports... there are only a few.
Absolute requirements are : a continuous devotion, but of course also a good and healthy pigeon colony.
Stefan STEENBERGEN (until 2014 in tandem with his father Albert) from Herk-de-Stad (Belgium - Europe) are among the top fews : they started with pigeons in 2001 and they won 11 national races in only a few years time ; an exceptional record, don't you think so ?

Only 2 years after having started their loft, in 2003, Stefan and Albert beated all other pigeon colonies and won 1st semi-National Bourges out of 3.244 pigeons.
It was no coincidence, because the pigeon-fanciers from Herk-de-Stad (Belgium) won one race after the other, bearing the palm with 1st NATIONAL KBDB Argenton 2006 against 4.099 pigeons.
Only a year after this success, Stefan won 1st NATIONAL KBDB LA SOUTERAINE 2007 against 4.331 pigeons.
He added another four semi-Nationals and five Nationals zone C, 13 victories on Local races and 30 times in the Top 20 National to his record, putting the counter to 11 victories...!
