This team consists of caretaker Freek Wagenaar, breeder Albert Hendriksen (Twello), breeder Bram Scherpenzeel (Twello) and their solid supporter Rini Vos (Voorst).
They took part in the races for the first time in 2017, flying as "Team Freek Wagenaar", Voorst.
Due to a severe allergy Freek Wagenaar only races young birds. In September the lofts are emptied and are not repopulated till March of the following spring when the new youngsters are delivered by the breeders Albert Hendriksen and Bram Scherpenzeel. This method works very well.
Team Freek Wagenaar has a very promising hen in their lofts: NL16-1248361 "José", who was bred by Bram Scherpenzeel out of two direct Eijerkamp pigeons, and .
In 2016 "José" flew a.o:
The performances above were reason enough to transfer "José" straight to the breeding loft.
She showed her breeding potential immediately and in 2017 she produced two daughters bred by Albert Hendriksen, who flew very well:
NL17-1814404 "Cindy" flew six prizes and was the 6th champion pigeon in Sect. 8 GOU.
