The partnership of Piet and Pieter van de Woestijne from Opheusden, a small village in the center part of Holland, are true specialists on the short and middle distance but also can excel on the One-day long distance. Even when they are not direct competitors of the Eijerkamp team, they race in the same section Afdeling 8 GOU and each year they compete in the top in all different championships in their own federation, region of section.

One of their base breeders is "Maj Britt", NL13-1801414NL13-1801414, a pure Heremans-Ceusters which Pieter bought direct at the Eijerkamp lofts. This great breeding hen bred, with proven descendants in first and second generation, bred multiple winners and champion pigeons in the father and son loft and again in 2021 the genes for "Maj Britt" still winning.
"Maj Britt" is bred from a direct Leo Heremans cock, grandson of the legendary "Olympiade 003" when paired to a daughter of another breeding star Jonge Peter"Jonge Peter", who again is grandchild of the famous "Olympiade 003".
