The incredible has happened: Combination Deryke-Schieman has once again delivered an unparalleled performance by achieving their second provincial victory of the year during the prestigious pigeon race from Roye. Let's celebrate this impressive victory and delve into the details that make this win so special.

The Start in Roye
On a beautiful yet challenging day in Roye, 7136 pigeons from 322 enthusiastic fanciers from Section 1 Zeeland were released at 1:15 PM. With a moderate northwesterly wind, force 4, and a temperature of 19 degrees Celsius, the conditions were ideal for an exciting race.

The Magical Arrival in Axel
The tension was palpable when the first pigeon from Combination Deryke-Schieman broke through the skies above Axel at 3:53:08 PM. This feathered champion covered the distance of 191 kilometers with an impressive speed of 1210 meters per minute. And as if that wasn't spectacular enough, just four seconds later, two more pigeons from the same loft followed! This resulted in a rare and glorious 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. What a performance against such a mass of pigeons!
