We checked the weather forecast almost 100 times this week. The predicted weather for the race day was not good. After this careful consideration we decided to leave a considerable part of our racing team at home this weekend. The remaining birds flew the middle distance race Chevrainvilliers (354km). Afterwards it seems that we made the correct decision. We heard that from the national Vierzon race this weekend a lot of birds are still missing.
Knowing that our birds do not love those fast races with mainly wind from the South, they did a good job on the middle distance race Chevrainvilliers (354km). They scored a very high prize percentage and 7 birds in the top 50. If this is our ‘worst’ result of the season, we will have had an amazing year!
The race this weekend was Melun (310km). This flight was again a tough race for the pigeons. The pigeons had to deal with rather strong headwinds on their way back home. The average velocity of the first pigeons was not faster than 1,250 mpm. It was the perfect occasion for our birds to demonstrate their qualities. For the fourth weekend in a row we managed to win the first prize. This time our racing cocks were the most dominant. The week before the racing hens were the most leading sex. It is a joy to have such a talented racing team.
