Season almost over but our birds keep on rolling

The month of September is approaching which means the racing season is almost coming to an end. We are still racing all our young birds so that they could gain enough experience for their career as a yearling. This weekend we sent all the young birds we have to the Melun (310km) race. We split them over two different federations. The weather circumstances were totally different than the ones of the two weeks before. This time the birds had to deal with high temperatures and a partial headwind, partial side wind. This made the race much tougher. Our youngsters did again a great job! Also we are still racing our old hens. They are motivated now through the nest system. They did a very solid team effort on the national Argenton (555km) race. They should be on their best for the national Chateauroux (526km) race next week.
Our pigeons won the following results:
