Aad van Bergen- Henegouwen lives in the town of Poeldijk which is located between the towns of Monster and Wateringen in Holland. A distance flyer who loves to race from St Vincent, Dax, Barcelona, etc,. Aad unlike many from Holland races his pigeons on the natural system and a favourite quotation of this fancier is as follows: ‘The natural system is like business, you need to have the feeling. The peaks can be high but if things do not work out well the valleys are deep’. Aad van Bergen- Henegouwen lives in the town of Poeldijk which is located between the towns of Monster and Wateringen in Holland. A distance flyer who loves to race from St Vincent, Dax, Barcelona, etc,. Aad unlike many from Holland races his pigeons on the natural system and a favourite quotation of this fancier is as follows: ‘The natural system is like business, you need to have the feeling. The peaks can be high but if things do not work out well the valleys are deep’.

In 1962 when he still was at school Aad got some birds from a Mr Ledderhof . These short- and middle distance birds did very well for him but then he left the sport for a period of years but eventually returned forming a combination with his nephew. Winning a few championships along the way with pigeons from a distance fancier called Jeu Vervuurt. The nephew and uncle partnership did not last for long however and Aad found himself with some youngsters of the Vervuurt family plus ten eggs purchased from Leo van Rijn from Schipluiden.Then on his own bat so to speak with the latter as a basis Aad raced with some average success but eventually reached beyond the average status until today he is considered one of the top distance flyers in
Europe.

Since those early days he has brought in some of the best European bloodlines such as Piet v.d.Silk, Jan Ernest,Thomas Peeters, Kuypers Bros, Albert Simons as well as in latter years the bloodlines of Jac van der Wegen.This has led to the following results from St Vincent 3rd, 6th, 10th, 18th and 37th National and from Barcelona he was 32nd International hens and from Pau 34th National.

Always on the look out for good distance bloodlines Aad (in 2002) bought eight pigeons from Jan Theelen a past winner of the Barcelona International and he looks forward to further successes with pigeons containing the latter cross. It is to be noted that his racers number about forty eight birds and that for his own use approximately sixty squeakers are reared and the latter are raced upto approximately four hundred and fifty kilometres.Of course these races are merely training spins for Aad has his sights firmly set upon the long distance.And as such he will be heard of in the future.
