19/07/2012 - Because of the national holiday in France on the 14th of July, all races were scheduled for Sunday. However, rain clouds made most organisers postpone the liberations till Monday. The races which took place on Monday ran a very smooth course, though some pigeons returned home soaking wet.
06/07/2012 - Last Saturday 30th of June we had lots of showers heading over from west to east. In between showers the pigeons were liberated and the races ran a smooth course. Except for Agen-Bordeaux, where pigeons on the west side had to deal with heavy showers that came on shore from the west.
05/07/2012 - Weather conditions were excellent this weekend, resulting in a pretty smooth race course with velocities of about 1700 m/min. A few fanciers distinguished themselves from others in this weekend’s races.
20/06/2012 - Big black clouds filled with rain held France in their grip on Saturday. Postponing the middle distance and great distance races was the only option left for the organizers. On Sunday the tied turned, and the pigeons were able to fly in clear blue skies.
12/06/2012 - The races of Saturday 9th of June were flown at an extremely high pace. The only one responsible for this was the powerful west-southwest wind that helped the pigeons reach speeds of over 1,700 m/min on the shorter distances and middle distances. On Sunday the forecasted rain was delayed, so the speeds were maintained. The racing season has now finally truely started.
