... otherwise several classifications would have been won at the National Championship Sprint K.B.D.B. and at the National Ace Pigeon Sprint K.B.D.B.!!!
From the first week (late start of the loft due to the bad weather only 14/04) till the last week of the race 29/07, the Frederick loft has been omnipresent in every competition with several dream results, like the first race, the 14/04 Soissons with the 14 fastest pigeons from 1,818!!! And the final race, the 29/07 with the 15 fastest of 1,141 pigeons!!! By referring to the summary table you can see that each week the loft was at the top and this with velocities from 1,000 till more than 1,800 m / m. The Frederick loft realized in 2012: 73 single price in the top 10 (in 1,619 average number of pigeons!!!) Of the 12 races where the entire team was sent. 73 single prizes were taken from a possibility of 120 in the top 10!!! (Average of 1,619 pigeons !!!) A total of 101 single prizes per 100!!!. A total of 22 first prizes at the Federation Renouveau and 15 times the fastest of the release (Renouveau - Triangulaire - Dodane - Entente des deux)
