47th Chalons en champagne 6,849p.

The first middle distance race was this week, the distances that the birds have to fly finally increasing to roughly 380 km for us. There was a decent southern wind, propelling the pigeons to speeds of 120 km/h. Moreover, there was a high cloud density in the air and rain on the line of flight. This combined with the velocity at which the birds flew, caused big differences in arrival times, as many birds had to fly back when going too far and some may have been held up by the big shroud of rain covering a good part of the route. Nonetheless, we still timed a good one.
