World class result on tough Melun race

We had a record result on the middle distance race Melun (310km) last weekend! We had the kind of result that will be difficult to improve in the future. On their way home, the birds had to deal in France with moderate headwinds from the North. In Belgium the wind changed to strong sidewinds from the Northwest to Northnorthwest. In the category old birds + yearlings we won the 7 first (!) prize against 1,160 old birds. In the category yearlings we won the 13 (!) first prizes against 670 birds. On top of that we had also had the fastest bird of the whole release against +7,000 birds with a lead of three minutes on the second bird. Our prize percentage was also breathtaking, no less than 57 of our 59 entered birds won a prize. What a race this was for us!

Our pigeons won the following results:
