Record breaking result on Melun

On the Melun (310km) race we had a spectacular result last weekend. The birds had to deal with headwinds on their way back home. Our old birds won the 1°, 2° and 3° prize. Our youngsters won even the 1°, 2°, 3°, 4°, 5°, 6°, 7° and 8° prize!

Our pigeons won the following results: 

23/06/2018 Melun (310km)

--> 1° + 2° + 3° + 4° + 5° + 6° fastest of the release against 2,855 youngsters

The fastest bird of the whole federation (1° fastest 1,149 birds) was our checkered cock B17-6025202. He is the last child of our breeding star “Elektro”(B08-6174630) that will ever be raced. B17-6025202 is a middle sized cock with soft, silky feathers.  His eyes are very similar to those of his famous dad. We are careful with this yearling cock. He participated to half of the races this season. We are very convinced of the great potential of this checkered cock. He showed his class this weekend by being the fastest bird of the whole federation on a tough middle distance flight. A very successful  “Elektro”(B08-6174630) crossing has always been “Elektro” coupled to a daughter of “Beauty”(B05-6234009), 2° fast. National Argenton (555km) 30,045 pigeons. Remember “Gloria”(B06-6270116) and “Delphine”(B11-6282004). The mother of B17-6025202 is “Dolly”(B14-6175134), another child of “Beauty”(B05-6234009).

First prize winner B17-6025202 is a son to "Elektro"(B08-6174630)

The second prize was won by our new golden boy. Every pigeon fancier has got favorite racers. The favorite racer of Jos is without any doubt the checkered cock “Iron Man”(B17-6025089). As a young bird he did something very special. Because of the stormy weather on the first day the birds had to stay two nights in the basket for the Noyon (208km) race. They were released at noon while the temperature had already risen towards 30°C.  They also had to deal with headwinds. In those extreme circumstances this cock won the 1° prize against 669 pigeons.. On top of that he had a lead of 7 minutes on his own loftmates and a lead of 9 minutes on birds of other participants. This spectacular performance totally convinced Jos. After this victory “Iron Man”(B17-6025089) crashed against the high tension wires. He had no life threatening injury but of course his season was finished. Then the year 2018 came. Right from the first middle distance race he was our first nominated pigeon. When the birds have to deal with headwinds, he is very hard to beat. On 26 May he won 1° Chevrainvilliers (354km) against 654 birds. As you could have guessed, the birds had to deal with headwinds on this race. This weekend he arrived together with his loftmate. They were 3 minutes before all the other old birds in the race. They won 1° and 2° Melun against 710 birds. And yes, “Iron Man”(B17-6025089) flew this top prize again when the circumstances were hard.

The third prize was won by the blue cock B17-6025361. He completes the podium. B17-6025361 is one of our most talented birds. We carefully brought him towards the middle distance races. The first part of the season we kept him on the short distance races. He showed his class on these 100-200km races. Every week he arrived early from the race. Our fellow pigeon racers from the region knew this pigeon quickly, he stood out. He is a direct son to “Olympic Elektro”(PL0264-13-400), 1st Olympic Ace-pigeon Middle Distance Brussels 2017. He was crowned as best middle distance bird of the world! The mother of B17-6025361 is our top racing hen “Bambi”(B13-6026002). She is a full sister to “Aladdin”(B09-6248081), 1° fast.
