The race from Souillac and the Ally loft: it has always been a perfect match. Possibly the pigeons are always in top form when the race comes up, or maybe they like the course of the race. Who can tell? One thing is sure; the results of the Ally team from Souillac have been quite impressive in the last few seasons. Time for a quick round up:

Almost a new tour de force
Last weekend on Sunday we almost saw a repeat performance of 2010 when they had a double win, winning 1st and 2nd. This time they had a great result as well with a 2nd and 6th national. They were only beaten by Rudi Desaer from Ruiselede.
Last year we wrote that Norbert and Stefan had one of the best yearlings teams ever, taking one victory after the other. Two birds of this dream team have now won 2nd and 3rd from Souillac. The bird who took the second place for the Ally loft is one of the big stars in the team and was of course basketed as 1st nominated:

There is no doubt about it: top class pigeons breed top class pigeons. This is illustrated by the loft of Norbert and Stefan. They have a lot of first class racers, which have been doing very well in the last few years with great provincial and national results in the grand middle distance and the long distance! They have an excellent racing team.
