In 2021, the brothers were cowardly robbed of a significant portion of their pigeon stock, and with these victories, they show that they are on their way back. Hans and Evert-Jan helped the brothers after this theft and lent them some breeding hens, including the NL21-1668430 as well as they give some young pigeons in 2022 to race.
