Racers Loft

Racers Loft 'De Stouten' is a beautiful pigeon that won 2 races in 2009, Argenton and Tulle >>> Watch the best pigeons
Grandfather Jos

Jos is managing his pigeon loft since he is married. He builded his house in 1966 in Aalter. Pretty soon after the house was builded, there were pigeon lofts. First above his garage but later on also in the garden. In the early 90's Jos started playing on the long distance , after he played 15 years on short distance. At the moment he still loves the long distance flights. It is also in this category he won a lot of prizes. His greatest prestations: 1e national Perigueux , 2e international Marseille, 2e nationaal Bourges + several provincial victories.


Jan is the son of Jos. They play together as Loobuyck Jos & Jan in the Weibroekdreef in Aalter. When Jan was a young boy he helped his father on the lofts with feeding the pigeons. For the moment Jan is managing the breeding loft in Bellem where several topbreeders live: the parents of the 6e national Tarbes, the parents of the 4e national and 1e provincial Tulle, the parents of the 1e provincial Vierzon, ... Also the 'Pursang' , 2nd international Marseille, has still a place on the breeding loft.


Jens is the third 'J' in the generation of the Loobuycks and he is the son of Jan. He plays with his own pigeons in the Ommegangstraat in Bellem. After only 2 seasons of playing, he allready reaches a high level. His favorite bird is 'De Stouten' who became 1e ace pigeon 2009 of Meetjesland and won 2 races in 2009, Argenton and Tulle.

Montauban first nat

Jul 08 2015

Montauban 06/07

We checked the first pigeons on the internet and then we calculated the time the first pigeon should arrive in Aalter around 17.10. At 17.08 we saw one pigeon skyhigh diving for his loft. It was the 1st basketted pigeon, the 464-12 (origin Fonne). So one year later the Loobuyck-pigeons took again the 1st prize in Eeklo out of Montauban. Last year the 5th national and this time even closer the 3th national!

Barcelona 04/07

Because of the extreme heat conditions, this Barcelona was going to be a tough one. It was 'Jens'Favoriet" that came home at 11.07. Last year he won the 1st prize out of Barcelona, and this year again an early prize with the 5th against 236 pigeons. 'Barca Fonne' didn't come home until now, although he flow two times in the top 10 the last 2 years out of Barcelona.

Montauban, Agen, Barcelona

This morning at 05.36h the first pigeon from Barcelona arrived at the lofts in Aalter. This pigeon won the 1st prize in Union Eiktak Eeklo. Half an hour later the 2nd pigeon arrived. So all the pigeons were home and we had the 1st and 5th prize of 265 pigeons! A few weeks ago we also had the 1st prize out of Montauban (a direct son of the Keikop) who won the 5th national of 5935 pigeons. From Agen/Bordeaux we ended with a nice 11th and 13th place with only 2 pigeons in the race against 144 pigeons.

This weekend the pigeons flew out of Narbonne. The 742-09 won the race against other strong competitors in Fondclub Eeklo. The 1st prize of 199 old pigeons. He was 26m/min faster than the second pigeon. In the provincial region he finishes as 2nd pigeon and national the 8th place and international the 9th place. Also the yearlings flew a very strong race. The first 2 pigeons flew the 13th and 20th place of 256 pigeons (2/3). So this weekend was very succesfull for the Loobuyck pigeons. Even on the loft of Devylder-Uytendale there was a great succes with Loobuyck-pigeons. From the strain of the 'Keikop' 2 pigeons finished on the 30th and 55th place on the national front!

Bordeaux 2 july

This day will be remembered longtime. Today there was the international flight out of Bordeaux. What nobody expected, became truth. The 274-07 was electronically signed at 19u07 what was the 1st prize National of 11000 pigeons, though the controlgummi was signed after 17 minutes instead of the reglementary 10 minutes. Because of this the national victory was lost. Despite the delay, the 274 still wins the local victory in Eeklo of 188 old pigeons and the 5th national.

The most results of championships are known. The 'Fantoom' wins the 2nd place in East-Flanders Ace Pigeon Fond 2010, after his 9th place Ace Pigeon Fond KBDB 2010. Another nice result , was the fact that the 'Sfinks' won the 1st Ace Pigeon Fond of het 'Meetjesland'. With this title he followed up his father the 'Stouten' who won this title last year. Father and son, makes it extra special!

Auction 10 oktober

Today the auction ended of the 20 best pigeons who flew in Bellem. This because Jens, who wants to become a pilot in the Belgian Army, stopped with the pigeonsport because it wasn't to combine with the pilottraining. The auction was a big succes. The 'Fantoom' was sold as the most expensive pigeon and he is 9th ace pigeon Fond KBDB 2010 in the prognose. The 'Sfinks' has a good chance to follow up his father as 1e ace pigeon Fond 2010 of 'het meetjesland' but we still have to wait a little bit.
