A very tough national Bourges race

The national Bourges (479km) race was a very tough one. The predicted weather circumstances were extremely tough, that is why the KBDB decided to organize the Bourges race this time only for old birds and yearlings. The national Bourges race for young birds will be flown two weeks later. The temperatures past weekend were between 35°C and 40°C. This extremely warm weather in combination with calm headwinds made it a racing edition to remember. In the evening the race was not finished yet… Luckily the day after most of the birds made it home.

We sent a small team of 7 old birds and 7 yearlings. Our team did it well. With the old birds we started with the 1° and 7° prize in our strong club St. Job. On the provincial level we won 3° + 37° provincial against 579 birds. With the yearlings we won the 5° + 6° in our club St. Job and on the provincial level this was 13° + 20° provincial against 1,123 pigeons.

Our first arrival was the dark checkered hen B18-6020265. She won the 1° prize in St. Job and 3° Provincial against 579 birds. B18-6020265 is a daughter to “Mr. Brive”(B15-6026268). “Mr. Brive”(B15-6026268) won during his successful long distance career amongst others two years in a row 3° Provincial Brive (704km) 705 pigeons and 4° Provincial Brive (704km) 793 pigeons.
