Cees Nijdeken – Rijssen – The Netherlands
The man with 3 of the best Marathon pigeons from the last decade on the Extreme long distance NPO flights with afternoon liberation. All Marathon fanciers in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe have heard from his toppers DE LATE BLAUWE, ZILVERPENNE and BRENDA !! Cees Nijdeken has built his pigeon strain with direct birds from the best of Jelle Jellema, Arjan Beens and Combinatie Verweij-de Haan.
The pigeon fancier Cees Nijdeken started with pigeons as a teenager and has had pigeons for more than 50 years. After years of participating in the overall program, Cees has been taking part in the marathon flights since 2001. For this, his first pigeons came from Jac Steketee, Theo Streefkerk and Klaas Sturris, among others. His debut at the time was already sublime with a 7th National ZLU Bordeaux in 2001. In 2011, with the 3rd National Montpellier, Cees came even closer to a national victory. That pigeon was found in the loft at 3 am in the middle of the night. In 2014, Cees finished 4th nominated in the Vriendenclub Nationale Concoursen (VNCC). In section 9 (Eastern part of Netherlands) he finished both nominated and unassigned in place 4. It would mean the start of very succesful marathon carreer with his pigeons!

BRENDA, 1st National Ace Marathon (3 prices), 1st Ace Marathon VNCC, 1st Prov Ace dpt 9 (Oost-Nederland), 7th National Marathon Pigeon in the PiPa ranking (2 prices)
