Peter Jansse takes yet another victory NPO

Sectoral race Issoudun

Last weekend was all about the national sectoral race from Issoudun. Given the northeasterly wind and the high temperatures, fanciers and their pigeons were anticipating a demanding but rewarding one day long distance race. The event took place in excellent and honest conditions. A total of 4173 pigeons were basketed for this NPO race in Province 9, and we saw a two year old hen of Peter Janssen complete the race with a velocity of 1126 m/min, which eventually resulted in a glorious victory. The NL17-1032870 covered 618 km in just over nine hours' time.

The winner in Issoudun has added quite a few achievements to her palmares this year. She now sits in 28th place in the ace pigeon championships for this competition in province 9, having won the following prizes in the province in recent weeks:

1e  NPO Issoudun      618 km  4173 pigeons
10e NPO Fay aux Loges 520 km  6704 pigeons
53e Nanteuil          381 km 11838 pigeons

Remaining true to tradition, the pedigree of Peter Janssen's winning bird in Issoudun, which you can find here, features several renowned birds that have excelled in numerous national and provincial competitions. Let's take a closer look.

The DV0147-14-211, the sire of the winner from Issoudun, has presumably passed on his great talents to his daughter. The 211 did particularly well at national level in 2016, claiming the following titles:

The hen that was privileged enough to become Müller's partner is DV0147-12-155. And Peter had good reason to put the two pigeons together, as this hen appears to have an excellent palmares:

Peter strikes again

Peter Janssen strikes again in Issoudun. We have a few more one day long distance races coming up soon, and we reckon Peter will encourage his pigeons to push their limits in these races as well.
