Barcelona (int.) 2013 | Weather along the race path

Are we headed for an honest but rough race from Barcelona? It sure looks like it. The weather is excellent above the middle of France, where by 5PM the last remaining clouds will have started to disappear.

In the meantime from the West the sky has started brightening up over Belgium. The pigeons entered France under a soft north by northwest wind changing into northeast from the Brive region, continuing on the race path till the Belgian border.

It’s going to be a Barcelona flown under a clear blue sky with a head wind along the entire race path, at temperatures near 25° to 30° Celcius above France. Rough circumstances but honest nonetheless. We wouldn’t want it any other way!

Released at 11:30 CEST

Weather conditions during liberation: light wind, north-northeast wind, clear, very good visibility
