In 2003 Luc Van Coppenolle a well known fancier in Europe was general champion of the Entente Belge and it is said that when he was standing awaiting the title at the ceremony he mentioned to a friend 'This championship is very nice to win, but I hope to win once in my life-time the 'European Super Marathon.' Well, one year later in 2004 and Luc's dream became a reality. Winning a championship which is very difficult to win based upon the first two nominated birds in the International races from Barcelona, Perpignan, Pau, Dax and Marseille against strong opposition from Belgium, Netherlands, Germany, Britain and France. Van Coppenolle won the championship with the following positions: 215th International Pau 8,270b; 327th International Barcelona 24,913b; 483rd International Marseille 19,627b; 594th International Perpignan 17,570b; and 699th International Dax 17,526b.

Luc Van Coppenolle was born into the sport of pigeon racing for his father who died a few years past used to bring Luc into his loft to see the pigeons and eventually the father and son became a partnership in Belgian racing. In fact Luc and his father Leon were the KBDB General National Champion in 1986. Today Luc Van Coppenolle still has the bloodlines of his father's 'Barcelona' in the loft which contains one of the leading modern European strains. As for the Coppenolle famous reds they arise from Leons old stock. The 'Barcelona' in his time won 28th International Barcelona 1977 against 10,502b; 88th National Barcelona 1979 against 6,612b; 286th International Barcelona 1978 against 11,000b. The latter great flyer contained the bloodlines of Desmet-Matthijs 'Klaren', Devriendt x Cattrijsse and Van Hee - Wervik. A true champion also at stock for he was the father of the 'Primus Barcelona': who scored 61st National Barcelona 1987 against 8,915b; 183rd National Barcelona against 7,252b; 491st National Barcelona 1982 against 8,351b; 489th National Barcelona 1984 against 7,066b; 521st National Barcelona 1985 against 8,647b; 879th National Barcelona against 8,886 birds. The bloodlines of 'Primus Barcelona' is now found in a lot of the top birds in the Van Coppenolle loft at present including 'Pau' who won: 3rd National Pau 1996 1,953b; 27th National Pau 1997 2,084b; 98th National Marseille 1994 1,267b. Raced as a widower 'Pau' was in 1996 4th World Champion Very Long Distance and 1st Provincial Ace Pigeon Long Distance KBDB East Flanders.

It should be mentioned that another great flyer Roger Florizoone contributed to the formation of the Coppenolle strain since about the beginning of the 1990s. So much so that today approximately 65/70% are off the bloodlines of a fancier who was nicknamed 'Mister Barcelona' and who died in 2004. Van Coppenolles mother was a niece of Roger Florizoone and through this relationship both families shared their best with each other. An arrangement apparently which was mutually beneficial.

An important base pigeon of the strain is the 'Blauwe Narbonne' who was 10th National Narbonne 1997 6,021b; 35th National Barcelona 1997 12,371b. He comes from the 'Blauwen Roger' who was bred by Roger Florizoone and comes from a son of the 'Benoni who scored 9th National Perpignan, 20th National Pau and 25th National Marseille. The son of 'Benoni' was paired with a sister of the 'Witneus' who was 5 times at the top from Barcelona and was the father of the 1st National Barcelona for Florizoone.The dam of the 'Blauwen Narbonne, is 'Stammoeder 1' who derives from 'Nest brother Primus 1' and a daughter of the 'Freddy' who was 5th International Barcelona 13,033b.

The Coppenolles are a hardy type of pigeon and they are winning for others wherever they have been raced and are acknowledged by pigeon commentators to be a strain expected to make a large impact in the distance racing of the new millennium. Little did Luc's father Leon realize that when he encouraged his son into the sport that the name and the strain was destined to play an important part in the continuing history of the sport of long and marathon distance pigeon racing.
