Agen (int.) 2015 | Pay attention when reporting your early arrivals for Agen 2015!
We would like to stress once more that for extreme long distance race from Agen, Dutch and German fanciers will have to report their early arrivals on race page that differs from that where UK, Belgian and French fanciers should report their pigeons.
This means that there are two different race pages for Agen:
- Agen (NL & DE) 2015: early arrivals of Dutch and German fanciers
- Agen (int.) 2015: early arrivals of French, Belgian and British fanciers
Please double check whether you have reported your arrival on the correct race page!
Agen (int.) 2015 | Number of pigeons
10,510 pigeons will appear at the start of this year's international race from Agen, with 6.025 old birds and 4,485 yearlings. In last year's edition, 20,065 birds participated. Take note that the Netherlands and Germany have a seperate race this year, and don't compete in this international race.
Agen (int.) 2015 | The Netherlands and Germany organise a separate liberation from Agen this year
Dispute about minimum distance
The organiser of the international race from Agen, Bordeaux Télévie, decided this year to shorten the minimum distance for Agen. The ZLU, which collects the Dutch pigeons for the international races, believes the race is now starting to have the appeal a long distance race and hence decided to have a separate release. Germany eventually joined them. As a result, the international race from Agen will be split into two:
- The original international race only for French, Belgian and British pigeons
- A race with a different liberation for Dutch and German pigeons
Holland and Germany report early arrivals on PIPA on a page different from that of UK, Belgium and France
The separate liberation has consequences for the live results on PIPA as well. Due to the split release and different liberation times it is not possible to report all early arrivals on the same race page. PIPA does not want to leave any fancier behind, and so we provide two race pages for Agen:
- Agen (NL & DE) 2015: Early arrivals of Dutch and German fanciers.
- Agen (int.) 2015: Early arrivals of French, Belgian and British fanciers.
Unfortunately for the Dutch fanciers, the split liberation also prevents us from using the automatic arrivals provided by ifcinfo.nl. This means they will have to submit their results manually in order to be published on PIPA. Belgian fanciers on the other hand can continue using Bricon or OMAR.
We recommend you to double check that your results are submitted on the correct race page.
