Dominating the Argenton result

We had again a great result on the national Argenton (555km) race! It was a tough race. In France the birds had to deal with rather strong headwinds. When they approached the Belgian border, the wind direction changed to the West/Northwest. Because of this, the national toppers were to be found in the East of Belgium but our birds defended their honour with class!

Our pigeons won the following results :

Our club St. Job is one of the most well-known in Belgium.  A lot of famous pigeon racers basket in this club. As a result the competition is always very high and the pigeon trainers are pushing each other year by year to a higher level. Bearing this information in mind, we can be proud on our club result from the Argenton race (see below).

A lot of famous pigeon racers on this result sheet


The fastest bird against 836 pigeons in our strong club St. Job against was our second nominated pigeon, the beautiful checkered hen B19-6016034. Her father is “London”(B16-6032120), a former long distance racer at our loft. We moved him after the season 2018 to the breeding loft and this move has already paid off. He has already bred several well flying babies. The mother of B19-6016034 is a daughter to “Elektro”(B08-6174630).
