Johan Van Damme
Between 2006 and 2009 Johan van Dam won a whopping 104 victories (without duplicating). He was the 1st overall champion of the East Flanders, in the region with a competition of more than 11,000 active breeders. With his victory at nat. Flight Brive, on the 29.5.2010, he again managed to shock his competitors. You could say that about 50% of his pigeons originate from his mentor Frans Sablon and the other 50% from his brother Jozef Van Damme, St. Gillis, Van Hautte Marc (Smetlede), Charles & Tom Hufkens (Geel) and, last but not least, Patrick and Guido Claes (Vorselaar). Thus, the Claes' pigeons have also contributed to his rise – his bird Elfpenner is an orig. Claes:
De Elfpenner is the father of Rambo, who was 1st interprovincial champion at Chateauroux against 3,682 pigeons. Our Van Damme is the full brother of Rambo I and Rambo II, which is racing for the pigeon fancier Adri Stroo.
