International winners: Boogaard - van Buuren (Amsterdam, NL)

The international Barcelona 2011 winners are Piet van den Boogaard and Marco van Buuren from Amsterdam. The average speed of their pigeon was 1594,89 m/min.

After the 12th and 34st national and international in 2008 the fifth national and international 10th 2009 (with the same pigeon "Katsu") Marco van Buuren and Piet van den Boogaard now win the 1st international Barcelona.

The hen has the number 07-1625890, on youngsters 7 days. She was so incredibly motivated that they she must also have flown in the night. But it was Peter who apparently had slept very restless and then it went out early. To his horror he saw a pigeon sitting. Immediately, he called Mark to tell a pigeon sat. Marco thought it was one of Montpellier. But no, BARCELONA it was. Peter clocked the pigeon, the time was 04.59.47. More than one hour later, they knew for sure. The 1st international is inside. On Montpelier today they clocked a son of this hen at 8.17 pm. This represents the fifth pigeon in Amsterdam. That cannot be a coincidence.

The winner has so far done the following:

716th national Bordeaux ZLU yearlings in 2008
637st national ZLU Tarbes ZLU 2009
729st national ZLU Barcelona 2010.
1st international Barcelona 2011.

Boogaard - van Buuren also received good Barcelona results in the past.

Traditioneel worden de duiven voor Barcelona gecontroleerd alvorens hun lange reis aan te vatten te Wolvertem in het transportbedrijf Lathouwers. Door de recente brand in het bedrijf was een loods onbeschikbaar geworden. Deze werd vervangen door het plaatsen van een tijdelijke tent.
