Fantastic result on Pont St. Maxence

When it started to rain above our lofts, we thought we could forget to win top results on the middle distance race Pont St. Maxence (250km) today. The rain however did not seem to bother our pigeons too much since they won a top result on this race!

Our pigeons won thhe following results:

Some interesting facts about this race:
- We had 9 young birds in the top 15 against +1,000 birds
- 28 youngsters won a prize in the first 10%
- We won the 1° and 2° prize with the old birds with our 1° and 3° nominated
- The bird that won the 1° prize, B16-6032279, is normally our second nominated bird. But, since we moved “Elektro Junior”(B16-6032012) to the breeding loft this week, he is the new leader of the racing team.
- The youngster that won 5° / 1,090 p. was our first nominated bird. His full brother was our first arrival with the youngsters and won 3° / 1,090 p. ! They are both children to our national KBDB ace "Zorro"(B15-6026003).
