Last weekend we had the first one day long distance race from La Ferte St. Aubin (529 kms for W. & F. Ebben and 530 kms for Combinatie Ebben). The weather was good and the birds had to deal with headwinds. The fastest bird flew just over 1200 mpm.
We had a very nice result. We entered 38 pigeons together and in our combine we won: 1, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 29, 44, 57, 62, 69, 74, 79, 94, 100 and so on against 1,275 pigeons.
