Golden Algarve One Loft Race: preparing for the 2019 edition

When the Golden Algarve Race began, it was another derby that would try to assert itself in the world of One Loft Races. But year after year the number of pigeons and participants doubled, all because of the well organized structure.

And thanks to the great treatment of the pigeons, with innovative methods and good people working in the lofts, all of them fanciers.

An overview of the lofts in the Algarve

The Loft Manager is a fancier for over 30 years, who -as a pigeon fancier- has been provincial champion in speed, middle distance, and long distance, and national and Iberian champion in some specialties. Important, because you can only succeed with the best.

The transport of the pigeons.

It’s also nice to know for the participants that 2 weeks after the final race, all the prizes are payed. The location of this OLR is also magnificent. Monte Gordo, in the Algarve (Portugal) is one of the better tourist destinations in the world. It’s not by chance that Portugal won the prize for the best tourist destination in the world for the two last consecutive years! So we have added the useful to the pleasant, and all the participants can bring their family by the end of September and enjoy the pigeons, the beach, the bars, the excellent hotels and the restaurants of Monte Gordo.

The beach of Monte Gordo

The weekend of the final race, Monte Gordo becomes the center of pigeon racing in the world. Last year, 4.000 people visited us. A place where pigeon fanciers from all over the world are joining each other for business opportunities, an annual reunion of many friends, and holidays.
