The national Jarnac race was a real tough one. The birds had to stay in the basket for 3 days. On their way back home the birds need to handle the high temperatures and the headwinds. Keeping in mind that Jarnac has a racing distance of 697km for our loft, you know that is was going to be an extremely hard race. The first birds in the province of Antwerp flew more than 11 hours! Our birds did a great job on this race and “Stella”(B16-6032171) confirmed her role as ‘prima donna’ on the long distance races in Antwerp.
Our young birds team has been unstoppable so far this season. Week after week they dominate the races. This weekend we sent them to the provincial Chevrainvilliers (354km) race. It was an extremely hard race. The youngsters had to stay in the basket for two nights. The temperate rose to above 30°C and on top of that the birds had to deal with headwinds too. Only the strongest birds could prevail, it was really a tough race for youngsters. We had again a smashing result on this Chevrainvilliers race!
