PIPA Rankings: preliminary results for the best pigeon in the Belgian national middle and long distance races

Last week we presented you with the PIPA rankings for 2013. We can now give you the preliminary results of the ranking for best pigeon in the national middle and long distance races over 2-3-4-5 races, both in the old birds’ and the yearlings’ category, as well as the ranking for best pigeon in the Belgian long distance competition in two races.

As the season progresses the rankings will become more and more interesting to follow. There is some fierce competition for the national ace pigeon titles as well. In the middle distance races fanciers have to achieve the best coefficient in four races to be awarded as national ace pigeon; in the long distance races you have to achieve the best coefficient in three races. For the PIPA ranking we have decided to dig a little deeper. The PIPA rankings system is explained in more detail here.

As promised our maths specialist will get to work as soon as the official results have been published. We will draw up the new preliminary results of the PIPA rankings as quickly as possible. In our last edition we only considered the national and zonal results but from now on the provincial results are taken into account as well. We give you an overview.
