So as most are aware I have a connections with golden wings challenge. They had there very first race last weekend. A short 54mile hop from Bretuil and they had been trained to 43miles.

It wasn't a hard race but obviously golden wings birds are bred for Barcelona, not a short 54 miler. Wasn't expecting much.

Of the 60ish sent i think it was. Think we are on 52 back so far but been thunderstorms most of this week. No doubt one will return on race day and seem to have won the race... it always seems to happen.

Anyway, to the result, two of my birds made club result 22nd and 28th of 250 ish. Which is fine when we are talking distance birds using a sprint race for training. Another competitor took 4th and John and Lou were 5th. Both of those made club result. There was a particularly good showing for gwc hens with three hens in the split fed result.

All in all pretty pleased. Clermont this weekend.

In all its glory... haha thanks guys, may not have been a first or second... But I'm happy with that at this stage. There seems to have been a small core using it as a sprint race, and a large chunk using it for training, and I seem to be towards front of that group
