Let us start with the Melun (310km) race. Our new golden boy did it again. “Iron Man”(B17-6025089) was this weekend the fastest bird of the whole release on the tough Melun (310km) race! The birds had to deal with high temperatures and headwinds. In these circumstances “Iron Man”(B17-6025089) is probably the best bird around. He won 1° fast. Provincial Melun (310km) against 10,781 pigeons. In our federation he had a lead of 6 minutes on his own loftmate. They win together 1° + 2° against 616 birds. Two weeks ago the same two cocks won 1° + 2° Melun against 710 birds!
Golden boy "Iron Man"(B17-6025089)
Every pigeon fancier has got his 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. Two weeks ago 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. This weekend he was the fastest bird of the whole release on the tough Melun race (10,781 birds).
The 2° prize was won by the 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. This weekend he won 2° Melun (310km) 616 pigeons (after a loftmate). Two weeks before he won 1° fast. Melun (310km) 1,149 pigeons.

Our third arrival in the category old birds was B17-6025361. He is one of our most talented birds. We carefully brought him towards the middle distance races.
