A 50% Geerinckx takes the win for Germany

A group of 710 pigeons was released at 8:45am in the German town of Göttingen for the final race of this famous Danish one loft race. There was a slight south-easterly wind and a temperature of 16°C, and the pigeons had to cover 395km to the lofts in Abenraa in the south of Denmark, in an overcast sky. The first pigeon arrived home at 15:34'48", after spending almost seven hours in the air. The winning bird was DV08857-17-101, a pigeon of the Jupid-Jung combination.

DV08857-17-101, named Lasse Norman, is a youngster of Marcello x Genia. The sire Marcello comes from the world famous Lucky 848, the sire and grandfather of the equally famous pigeons Blue Ace (2nd Nat. Ace Pigeon Long Distance) and Bak 17. The dam Genia is a black chequered hen that originates from the two stock bloodlines of Geerinckx from her father's side. Her sire Late Witte Willy comes from Wittekop Sylvester x Willyke, and her dam Chateaurouke was a very successful racing hen: she won a 2nd Blois 2,135 p., a 2nd Interprov. Châteauroux 3,391 p., a 6th Prov. Châteauroux 2,024 p. and a 13th Prov. Blois 1,112 p. This 50% Geerinckx racing bird combines some outstanding racing and breeding bloodlines, which explains why he managed to claim victory in the closing race of the Danish Pigeon Race.
