Robert Van Eycken

Erps-Kwerps
2 x Emperor Brabantse Unie 6 x General Champion Brabantse Unie
Superior dominant at times outstanding!
This is how we can perfectly describe the pigeon game that the Robert Van Eycken colony has showcased over the last few years. The region around Erps-Kwerps in the province Brabant will therefore soon never be what it used to be indeed, the chance that anyone will equal, let alone improve on the performances in the long distance and grand distance of figurehead and pigeon celebrity Robert Van Eycken is exceptionally small. Robert has had a blitz career coloured with a very long series of triumphs, 3 national and 1 international victory and a trophy cabinet in need of expansion due to overflowing! Later it will be over and out everything will be sold due to health problems there is no other solution.

TOTAL AUCTION

From chicory merchant to super chasmpion with the pigeons Erps-Kwerps is situated in the middle of what they describe in the history books as the Chicory region. Robert Van Eycken (born in 1926) worked all his life as a vegetable merchant (chicory and cabbages) and fruit. Every other day he travelled to Paris with his lorry, in between loading and unloading, it was at times hard labour Robert ultimately suffered from a bad back which meant that he could no longer clean the lofts himself for this he could rely on the help of Freddy Uyterhoeven but feeding, bringing his pigeons to their peak, letting them explode at the right time Robert Van Eycken understood the art better than anybody, the nicest proof of the unmistakable super champion hidden inside him. In his busy work period (1962-88) he was forced to leave the pigeon sport for what it was but, with his retirement in sight, Robert made a new start in the pigeon sport in 1988. And they will have felt it there in Brabant and the surroundings in no time the Robert Van Eycken colony grew to become a real topper in its sort, to one of the better colonies of the province, even our country. First in the middle distance with pigeons from Alberic de Veseleer from Tollembeek, Jos Deno from Leefdaal and 4 youngsters from Deceuninck-Vanhoucke with which he was king of the small middle distance in Woluwe in 1995, and also King of the extreme middle distance. They were also the years in which the first national victory was booked (from Bourges in 1995), and he was allowed to climb the national podium as 5th National Champion Yearlings KBDB in 1998! The Alex, the Bijou, the Blitz (line 2nd Nat Limoges by Filip & Norbert Norman) were the toppers out the first years! When he later aimed his sights more at the long distance pigeons came from National Champion Long Distance KBDB 2004, and personal friend of Robert, namely the late Gaston Devooght from De Haan the lines of the Wouter (1st Nat Dax 2.088 p., 21st Nat Limoges 7.776 p.), Vechter, Aldo (1st Nat Pau 2.144 p.), the Boerinneke they formed the solid foundations on which the current long distance successes by Robert Van Eycken are still based, with which he has achieved national victories and top classifications the Devooght pigeons still form for 75% the backbone of the colony. Later the famous De Rauw-Sablon pigeons also joined them (in 2003 Robert bought a.o. the top couple Herve x Marthe which a.o. are grandparents of the 1st Nat Limoges 06 by De Graeve-Van Geert, and great grandparents of Andy: 4th Nat Ace bird KBDB 11), the line Perpignan King from Kurvers-De Weerd but also the bloodlines Wynands & Son, Van Ophuyzen-Marell and Cor de Heijde were successful in crossing. Noble long distance blood with which Robert has achieved the highest triumphs up to national level! The Belgian flag has already been waving about three times in Erps Kwerps with (inter)national victories from: 1st National Bourges 1995 1st National Marseille 2002 (and 4th International) 1st International Marseille 2003 This in addition to a wondrous chain of top performances seasoned with a recital of victories up to provincial level! You will learn all about it in this little epic. Even a cowardly theft didnt break him They were striking performances, which also the immoral men had noticed. Because in September 2004 Robert was visited by burglars, who sole more or less the entire breeding team as a result of which Robert was forced to place a few strong racers from his racing team into the breeding loft early, to take care of the further expansion of the colony together with his Boris (winner 1st Intnat Marseille 20.721 p. 2003, and which luckily escaped the notice of the thieves). From this moment on, Robert only concentrated on the national long

distance calendar. With this, the Van Eycken-colony was possibly temporarily beheaded, but soon bit back hard and mercilessly, and how? It was the Boris who became the new stock father of the loft, and left his mark more and more on the Van Eycken colony the results dont lie! In both 2005 and 2006 Robert was proclaimed General Champion in the Brabant Union, in 2007 he was 1st Champion Long Distance Yearlings, 2nd Champion Long Distance O.b., and he won the Ace bird Rhone Valley by CFW. In 2009 superstar Contador showed his true colours was 1st Nat Ace bird Long distance Entente Belge, 2nd Nat Ace bird Long distance KBDB and was proclaimed Best Long distance pigeon of Belgium over 4 national races! It didnt finish there because in 2011 it was the turn of that other racing wonder from Erps-Kwerps to display his top class, the Andy which at the end of it all was flagged 4th National Ace bird Long distance KBDB and Best Long distance pigeon of Belgium over 4 national races! In a timespan of hardly 3 years (2009-2011) owning no less than the Best Long distance racer of Belgium over 4 national races twice it is not only unique in the Belgian pigeon sport history it testifies to the very GREAT CLASS radiating from the modern Robert Van Eycken pigeon! Simply WORLD TOP in the long distance and grand distance let there be no doubt about it! A CHANCE NOT TO BE MISSED On 12 February the final curtain will fall for the Robert Van Eycken colony simply because there is no other choice, a forced departure due to there being no other way out because body and health cant or wont anymore the verdict of the doctors treating him is irreversible. Nevertheless the Robert Van Eycken colony were far from finished, quite the opposite they were rather at their best, at the climax of their fame. Proven by current toppers as Contador (1st Nat Ace bird Long distance Entente Belge 2009, 2nd Nat Ace bird Long distance KBDB 2009, and Best Long distance pigeon of Belgium over 4 national races in 2009), the Andy (4th Nat Ace bird Long distance KBDB 2011, and Best Long distance pigeon of Belgium over 4 national races in 2011), the Jupiter, Diamant, Schalie, Di Stefano (9th Nat Ace bird CFW Route du Rhone), the nest brothers Hincapie I and Huberto, with their brother Hincapie II, in addition to the Young Crack, a Branco and so many more. All clappers who have set the tone and allowed Robert Van Eycken to play a leading role in the national long distance and international grand distance happenings! Pigeon which often cut deep into the greatest opposition up to (inter)national level with their surplus of power, cleverness, stamina pigeons with an inexhaustible mordant, a character of iron and steel, not afraid of hard work pigeons which carry on to the very end! They have made Robert Van Eycken what he is today a WORLD TOPPER of format! A colony at the peak of their capabilities has to be passed over thats why the departure is so tough! Robert and his Maria they are people with hearts of gold people who Brabant can be proud of for centuries!

The 'breeding jewel' of Erps Kwerps : not only did he open the door to the Hall of Fame with 1st International MARSEILLE, 20.721 pigeons in 2003, he was the 'beating heart' of the loft as 'Golden Stock Bear' : his excellence in the Robert Van Eycken colony
