Long distance is for those with patience, perhaps not...

:lol: :lol:

That's very good, Chris!

Not far wrong, either.

As an old jockey, I am well aware that a long distance horse or dog or pigeon or athlete is simply one that was too slow to be a short distance one. :D

I am still to be convinced that distance is more important than speed.

Distance Pigeons must be cut from the right cloth ; & a lot of luck required to get them through , Plodders are not what i'm looking for ,cheers

My opinion too. You want the fastest slow or the fastest fast. The speed is determined by the distance. A pigeon like any other living creature only has so much in the tank, and needs to stop when needed. I wouldn't put usain bolt against gabril sallassy in a marathon any more then I would try sallassy in a sprint against bolt.

In my opinion this is what makes crossing for a fit technically possible, if you were able to work out the genetic splits. Lung capacity. Chest muscles. Wings. Even potentially crop? Could all be decisive factors in pairing for a distance.

Correct.

They are like the top staying racehorses these days. They can run the last half mile of a two mile race nearly as quickly as the sprinters.

The day of the plodder is gone. They have to be fast enough, and trained enough, to put themselves in the front bunch at the get go, and keep it up.

If you are behind at the halfway point, you will finish behind.

Murray
