RIEKS LONSAIN – Nieuwleusen
Rieks Lonsain, born in 1978, raised in Staphorst and living in Nieuwleusen since 2009 where Rieks has his own masonry company. Because he had a few ornamental and racing pigeons flying around the house just for fun, he came into contact with the pigeon sport and has been an active member since 1993.
Like most novice fanciers Rieks started with the program flights, it turned out that the long distance and especially the multi-day long distance flights were his preference, so in 2000 he decided to specialize in that. Rieks also played some of the ZLU flights (international morning releases) and that part of the pigeonsport (some call it the Champions League of Pigeons sport) interested and challenged much and that’s why Rieks Lonsain decided to focus only on these ZLU flights from 2009.
Before he made the move to the ZLU flights, Rieks won the 1st NPO Perigueux and 1st Bordeaux in the northern Fondclub Noord Nederland (FNN)
Some good results from his first few years on the ZLU flights Rieks are a.o.:
14, 19, 56, 82, 187 National Pau
28, 148 National Agen ZLU
70, 99, 103, 104, 123, 133, 191 National Marseille
78 National Barcelona
110, 149 National Bordeaux
184 National Perpignan
Note! All this with an overflight of 200 (!) kilometers on the southern provinces of The Netherlands (Limburg, Brabant, Zeeland).
Meanwhile during the years that Riekes Lonsain played the ZLU flights, he used some NPO flights as training exercise for his marathon pigeons in preperation to the ZLU flights. His best results on these NPO flights were:
6 National s4 Limoges
7 National s4 Ruffec
1st National s4 Ace Marathon NPO
1st Ace Marathon dpt 10 NPO
1st Ace NIC Marathon
