A total of 2453 birds (of which 167 Dutch pigeons) discharged at a distance of 521 kilometers. Along the way they had to contend with rising (very high) temperatures and headwind. Jan Hooymans and Mario Bambacht of the Hooymans Team, were present to see the Hooymansbirds coming home live.

However, the first day there were only 16 (+ 1 unactivated) pigeons over the finish line. Hereby, the “Peterle” by Jan Hooymans – Hu Zhen Yu. This pigeon won the 14th prize FINALE SAMDPR (521km). “Peterle” is, moreover, a full sister to the 14/242, a young promise which flew the 1st in the club on Quievrain (and 7th against 12,802 pigeons!). From fatherside, Peterle comes from “Mr. Dolce “, from the best of Pieter Veenstra (Dolce Vita, Chanel No.5). Mother of Peterle is our “Doutzen” a mighty hen which won herself a 10th NPO Chateauroux. “Doutzen” is a full sister of “Harry” and comes directly from the Stam Couple “”Jonge Bliksem” x “Dirkje”.
