The best fancier (based on his 2 fastest pigeons across all flights) and the best pigeon across all flights (with the highest average speed) respectively earn the prestigious Black Jacket & Blue Jacket. These titles earn just as much honor as the winners of the Final. A total of 1,698 pigeons were entered on Race 1 and 960 pigeons were still in competition during the Final; a very good result during the entire series, which was spared from races with major losses. The Top 30 Final and the Top 30 Ace Pigeons will be included in this special auction; the best pigeons of the first AfrikaPro edition.
