5 combine winners 2016 of Leo van Rijn

8. Best fancier of the Netherlands!!

Leo van Rijn is a fantastic racer and also 2016 was fabulous again. He became 8 best pigeon  fancier WHZB-TBOTB of Holland and he has also the 14. best pigeon of Holland. A great result, because Leo lives at the West side of the Section and that is really bad. This is the proof of Leo's quality pigeons!

Last Saturday 25st April 2015 in Holland most combines go basketing for 4th time, so also we here, with our combine for a race from Menem/Moeskroen.

So far the pigeons this season doing for me just as good as last year.  I had 40 pigeons in the basked from the 47 in my loft (7 at home because there were expected bad raining cold weather) (21 cocks and  26 hens is my total race team)  because the doing very well this first three weeks, and the condition was fine, I expect the will doing well even with this bad weather what was expected .
I have feed them normal as for middle distance races because they must be able to stand hours in the air if necessary with bad weather. This means in the begin of the week after the last race first 70% and later on Tuesday 30% mariman super diet and the other % 2  varieties of the best widower food, Wednesday evening and Thursday as much as they like, and Friday for basketing only a half a spoon mariman diet.  
The do there training  very well around the loft 2 times a day 1 hour,  and the body was at the moment of basketing super. Light and full body. As told before I never show the hens to the cocks before the race, and put them  total quid in the basked. I never bring them away for a training, the here doing this very well them self.
Paired up with Christmas the bring 2 youngsters each pair, and were separate on there youngsters on 14 days. After weaning the youngsters,  I have start the training daily 1 time a hour around the loft, and keep them quiet on diet food . From around 1e April with good weather the start training 2 times a day. Looking at the results I go on with my system. It is simpel  and good it seems.
The pigeons going out the baskeds in Moeskroen as soon as rain was a moment gone, 12.10 hour, with a south western wind . Our race was going much better (more high speed)) as the rest of Holland. We are Lucky.
I  expected the pigeons around  13.40,  so when 13.38 one arrived it was no surprise .Soon  is was clear it good be the first, because the whats up to day show no faster in the area.
In a few hour we have in Holland our results from Compuclub computer service, and yes, I have again the 1e , this time to against 3376 pigeons.  
After the very good results last year 2015, it go this year 2015 it seems the same.
 1e time basketing  4 April 2015 met 1e -5e -6e 9e in Rayon on 1626 pigeons on  Essen Nispen.( not much pigeons by a noord noord eastern wind,   very cold head wind )
the 2e week 11 April de 1e champion points race from Duffel with south western wind and extra day basked to free on Sunday, good calm weather I start against 3673 pigeons with  2-4-6-14-16-19-20-21 etc  
last wk 18 April from  Oudenaarde a eastern wind, for me on the east side of my western Rayon  not easy,  start with  27e against  4182 pigeons but I had 38 pigeons in the price from 47 . ( as told I Leo , have  22 cocks and  26 hens as total race team )
first wk  1e  was  topper 403,  Blue Power , next wk Duffel the son of the super Frederica (is son  010= Mr Perfect x  Frederica) the  2e in the combine (Frederica last year  1e on  NPO afd 12 Kuststrook on   1e Asse Zelik against  8538 pigeons and the 1e Pt St Max to 8471 pigeons. )  Now this 1e is from a New line talent,  from the famous National day race ace , the Harry line, the yearling  364 who take 1e to  3376 pigeons.

Here the results 2015 of my loft until 6 June 19, 2015
With the 1e last wk of the west side of south Holland Province, a lot calls and message that this was very special with this for me most wrong western wind.  
Yesterday, we had 2 races.

On Peronne I scored 15 price on my 20 pigeons with  1-5-7-10-16-17-18-22-23 etc in club is  8-27-29 etc on 2155 pigeons
Vierzon was later on the day arrivals with a very strong western wind in a bad provincial position for us here in the area  price 2-5-20 is 14 -36 –in the combine  on 1331 pigeons   
This Last wk the pigeons look very well , after give  them my weakly  good care and the for me usual natural things, and I suppose I have to be happy with how they arrived. Started here with 3 x 1e combine and 1 x 2e and 1x 3e so far here nobody do better.
