Jan Hermans one of the most respected men in the Pigeon Sport of any generation and son Rik the most ambitious young Dutch pigeon fancier racing in Belgium!
*Last Saturday from the Bourges National Race I thought Rik Hermans team result was sensational winning 12 prizes from just 13 Old Bird entries, including 6th National with ‘Klein Harryke’ and 7th National with ‘Tinky’ from over 22,000 entries, I was pleased to receive this email from Rik this morning…
Yesterday we had National race from Chateauroux (535 km).
National section we had wrong wind.
But I made again good result local and provincial.
I only raced hens, cocks were not raced at all.
