8, general, you've had some great performances and races .how would you advise a novice to start to achieve somewhere near your level ?

Distance racing.
Take your time, be patient and listen to as many top pigeonmen/women as possible, then make YOUR OWN mind up.Get latebreds from these fanciers and put them together and let the gene pot boil. Youve got 2 ears and one mouth so listen twice as much as you talk.Distance racing is very, very hard and their are always cranks ready to have a go at you when you arent firing on all cylinders.People forget that distance pigeons are like hens teeth and its very difficult to constantly get on the results. All top distance fliers have lean years but the best of them come back, eventually.So dont listen to the cranks because they are usually jealous and usually couldnt fly a kite on a windy day anyway.Focus on your own loft and be patient. Always remember,any sport is all about timing.


What an excellent piece of advice.

What a super session!!!
Thanks Andy and Derek.
Andy
