Mark van den Berg - IJsselmuiden (NL) strikes from Perigueux K.IJ.G.C.

The fourth (from a total of 6 races in the various disciplines) K.IJ.G.C.-attraction race was flown on the 25th of May from Perigueux. It was now the turn of the men with a lot of patience, seeing that the average distance measured 905km.

The pigeons were liberated on Friday afternoon at 13h00 under very though circumstances, more than 30 degrees and a NE-wind.
It was the 2-year old nest cock ‘Torres’ from Mark van den Berg which arrived home at 11h05.23, beating the other 340 competitors. With a velocity of 956 m/min he was more than half an hour in front of the rest.
‘Torres’ is a direct son of ‘Ray’, obtained from Raymond Moleveld and is a full brother of ‘Blauwe Bertus’ with the 1st Nat. St. Vincent. The mother of ‘Torres’ is a direct Koop and Gerda Kiekebelt and is a daughter of their ‘Gert-Jan’ (father of 6 Teletext-pigeons).
