Harry Hendriks – Vinkeveen – Mister Marseille !
For the bigger audience abroad, Harry Hendriks is one of the many relatively unknown fanciers who perform super on the extreme long distance flights in Holland. Harry lives in Vinkeveen, which is near Amsterdam, in the strong extreme long distance province Noord-Holland where so many good marathon fanciers live! One thing is 100% sure: everybody in Noord-Holland knows Harry from his great results and his top birds who seem to enjoy the hardest races, the international flights with morning release.
In the past, when Harry and his late father raced as Combinatie Hendriks, they were hard to beat with their Deurwaarder-Pronk pigeons which originate from GEBROEDERS KUYPERS, ANDRIANUS VAN DER WEGEN and JEF VAN WANROY. Especially the van Wanroy strain of pigeons was very succesful in that period, 1990-2010 at Harry Hendriks. Many early birds, victories and prestigious championships were won together with his father. 1st Provincial Emperor ZLU flights is the one title Harry remembers well and is still proud of!
Since a few years Harry freshened up his older strain of birds and crossed them with a few toppers from other topfanciers at the moment: Combinatie Baas-Berg, Tim Hage, Combinatie Verweij – de Haan and Gebroeders Jacobs. All personal (pigeon-)friends from the same strong region and province Noord-Holland.
With these “Harry Hendriks 2.0 pigeons”, he boosted his breedingloft and returned in the toprankings!
Since his “re-start” in 2016 Harry Hendriks won:
1st Provincial Overall ZLU Champion nominated Fondclub Noord-Holland (Pau, Agen, Barcelona, Marseille, St Vincent, Narbonne, Perpignan)
1st Criterium der Azen Marathon Noord (Barcelona, Marseille, Perpignan)
1st Supercup Marathon Noord (Barcelona, Marseille, Perpignan)
2nd Pyreneencup Fondunie 2000 (Pau, Barcelona, Marseille, Perpignan)
3rd Super League Fondunie 2000 (Pau, Barcelona, Marseille, Perpignan)
Also Harry Hendriks has the 2nd Best International Hen PiPa ranking all international flights with “MISS LEEUWARDEN” on his loft !! (In the auction is a child from this super hen!!)
