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.
13/06/2012 - 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.
