Its here!!!

The final of this years Europa is now upon us with the birds having their training toss of the series today! They were 19th, 56th, 152nd and 324th. They have performed so well in the training and hotspots that I am hoping to get at least 1 in the top 50 of the final result from 240 miles. They have hammered the top 50 all series to date with them taking:- 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 6th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 11th, 16th, 17th, 19th, 19th, 19th, 19th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 29th, 30th, 30th, 31st, 32nd, 34th, 35th, 35th, 36th, 36th, 37th, 38th, 39th, 44th, 48th and 49th!
This has been with a team of just 4 pigeons competing with on average 600 birds per race! I hope they don't let themselves down now in the final with a poor performance! The final is on Sunday and the weather is not too clever but hopefully they will thrive and produce a great performance for the loft!

The birds in my own loft are exercising very well with up to 1hour 20 mins work being put in when out exercising. They have had two 7 mile training tosses which were Monday and Tuesday and they are going now this evening to 14 miles. So hoping to get them in a good time. The race is just 9 days away and I am feeling it will be very difficult to get them ready for this in time so they might go to the one on the 24th instead. I have kept them all season and I am not prepared to throw them away due to rushing. I am wanting the majority of the cocks for a team of widowers for next season and can't wait for the REAL racing to start next year!!
