『フェルナンド』08-3187413:ジョニー・デスヘーマーカー&フランソワ・ファンハウヴァート − フェルデーゲム(ベルギー)、チュールプロヴィンシャル西フランダース1位。

This two year old cock achieved a velocity of 1444,20 m over the for him 626 km long journey , with which he marvellously won the “Tulle peloton” in the coast province against 1081 old birds.

Hereby the provincial victory went to a colony which in 2010 ( and also many years before) belongs to the absolute top in the middle distance to light long distance in ‘West Flanders .In the race concerned from Tulle by the 1081 old birds they achieved a.o. provincially the 1st – 11th – 28th ….etc…..But there is so much more…..the men score top prizes every week….As for example from Souillac …(see further) .

Let’s firstly take a closer look at the provincial winner !
It concerns a summer youngster which was only trained in his birth year. In 2009 he won a prize from Argenton and then from Tulle the 15th prize in the Fond club against 185p. In 2010 he classified from a.o. Poitiers as 17th / 256p, from Limoges as 21st/ 214p and from Souillac as 64th / 269p. To then be flagged as number one provincial from Tulle!
