Gerrit van Boven inherited the pigeon bacteria from his deceased father Gerrit, who sadly passed away March 2020. Together with the help of his brother Jan he continued the pigeon sport at the parental home on the same lofts as his father raced successfully. Both brothers, with the assistance of their mother, compete in Wezep, a legendary former pigeon mecca in de pigeon sport, in the North of Gelderland. Now this race they won, besides, the 1st and 2nd in the region also 1st and 2nd of the entire release in the North of the amalgamation.
Both winners arrived side by side and both fastest of over 7,000 pigeons.
