Gold, silver and bronze on an extremely tough young birds race

We had three races this weekend: the middle distance race Gien (410km), the national race Jarnac (697km) and the young birds race Noyon (208km).

The Noyon (208km) race for young birds took place on Monday. Normally they should have been flying on Sunday but  they had to stay in the basket till Monday 12 am because on Sunday and Monday morning the weather conditions were too bad. Also Monday at noon it was still risky to release the birds. The combination of high temperatures, headwinds, two nights basket made it an extremely hard race for youngsters. In the evening a lot of birds were still missing, also at our own loft. Luckily many birds arrived today early in the morning so this race was after all no disaster at all.

Our pigeons won the following result:
