Fantastic result on national Chateauroux race

The national race of the day was Chateauroux (526km). It was a very tough edition. The birds had to deal with foggy weather during a big part of their way back home. The temperature rose to almost 30°C and the birds had to cope with headwinds as well. It was a race for the real strong and smart birds.

We sent a small team – 7 old birds and 14 yearlings -  to this race and they did a great job! We started with the 14° National Chateauroux (526km) against 18,689 pigeons. We will have 19 prizes of 21 entered birds!
