Eijerkamp descendants celebrate enormous triumphs in Morocco

Eijerkamp descendants celebrate enormous triumphs in Morocco

Morocco is an emerging pigeon racing country, with many younger enthusiasts participating in the sport. Especially in Casablanca, the largest city in the country, there are many practitioners of the sport. Additionally, the OLR (One Loft Races) in Morocco are becoming increasingly important and gaining popularity. The import of pigeons from Europe is officially nearly impossible, but the pigeons that do make it into the country significantly boost performance, leading to many great successes. Among these are numerous achievements with descendants of Eijerkamp pigeons from the top lines of Heremans-Ceusters and Stefaan Lambrechts. Below are a few of the recent successes with a high Eijerkamp percentage in their bloodlines.
1. Final Derby Marrakech OLR and carwinner Frere Goufrane
The final of the Derby Marrakech covered a distance of 490 km, with 102 pigeons remaining in competition from the initial 754 that started. The final was also challenging, but the eventual winner was Frere Ghoufrane with the pigeon MA23-49572 "Haaland", which was recorded after 9 hours and almost 15 minutes at a speed of 883 m.p.m. This pigeon ultimately also became the 2. Ace Pigeon in the race with the following classifications.

  • 1. Final (480 km) 102 pigeons 883 m.p.m.
  • 11. Race 1 (120 km) 444 pigeons 1,097 m.p.m.
