Consistency of great results throughout the racing season is what differentiates a top from a mediocre pigeon fancier. Marc Vanonckelen is part of that 'upper class' of pigeon fanciers, those who perform on the highest level consistently, year after year. Just last weekend, Marc won 1. fastest Prov. Bourges against 3,248 pigeons (466 km) which is also 2. Nat. Bourges 9,922 old birds.
