His pigeonloft is for 95% based on two strains: SUPER BARCA 621 & MONT VENTOUX of Gebroeders Jacobs and the GOLDEN SUPER PAIR 100 x 10 of Nico Volkens!

Having put the Jacobs pigeons from Gertjan Rigter and the Volkens pigeons from his pigeonmate Hennie de Vries together and crossbreeding with them, soon it was clear that the offspring was super! The orientation skills & the willpower of the Jacobs pigeons combined with the endurance of the Nico Volkens pigeons created a kind of pigeon very hard to beat.

How did his successtory start? Gertjan Rigter has purchased 7 direct children of the SUPER BARCA 621 and 4 children of the MONT VENTOUX from the Jacobs brothers about ten years ago. The SUPER BARCA 621 was not only a big champ at the marathonraces (winner of 1st National Ace Perpignan 3 years ZLU, 9th National Perpignan and 15th National Barcelona), but later he became the basic super breeder of Gebroeders Jacobs. But let’s not forget to mention the second super breeder of the Gebroeders Jacobs, the MONT VENTOUX, who’s offspring is also very succesful. Two sons from the MONT VENTOUX are the fathers of the two 2nd National winners at the loft of Gertjan in 2018!!

The input of Hennie de Vries in the breedingloft are 3 grandchildren of ETTERBAK (Barcelona Ace pigeon), CHAMPION (1st National Ace ’09) and JELTE (1.National Marseille ’08) but all the others are original Nico Volkens from the 100 x 10 Super pair. Many toplofts have great success with the legendary Nico Volkens’ BONTE KOPPEL and “100 x 10” which are direct Sam de Jong pigeons. Some references are: MONTAR KOPPEL of Jan Roelofs, the Agen and Pau victories at Leo Pronk, Comb. Verweij-de Haan with their Balotelli (1st International Agen 2015), Levi vd Weijden (1st International Narbonne 2015), Kees Droog (1st International Pau 2016), Mevlut Tekin (1st International Perpignan 2016), Ed Maat (1st International Pau 2017), the topbreeder GOUDEN 10 of Fre de Boer.


The focus in this ** THE MONT VENTOUX SPECIAL ** auction are the offspring (children and grandchildren) of the two super breeders of Gertjan Rigter:

SON MONT VENTOUX 90 & SON MONT VENTOUX 606 (both are sons of the MONT VENTOUX x the PAU LADY (daughter SUPER BARCA 621) of Gebroeders Jacobs). The MONT VENTOUX line is crossed with his very strong inbred Nico Volkens pigeons from the Bonte Koppel and 100 x 10! Crossing both strains is Gertjan Rigter’s key to success!!

RIET, JANNIE, ALICIA, PATRONA & CARO are the perfect examples of that strategy! You will find these 5 super hens in the pedigrees of the birds in this

                                                                                                                        ** THE MONT VENTOUX SPECIAL **
