Fantastic stuff
Rennes the holy grail
Nothing comes close
Just proves what was possible in the west when birds were racing straight line of flight
Was fortunate enough to have timed loads of good pigeons in the 70's from rennes
Sure we would still get a good entry
What a buzz to have on my headstone I won rennes
Happy days
