The Unforgettable Victory of Richard van den Bos from Arras!

Imagine this: the sky is cloudy, a gentle northwest wind is blowing, and the temperature is a comfortable 20 degrees Celsius. It’s May 19, 11:30 AM, and 9,760 pigeons take off from Arras, ready for a 208-kilometer flight to their home lofts. This sets the scene for an epic victory by none other than Richard van den Bos!

The Exciting Start:
Out of 363 racing pigeon fanciers in Rayon West of Section 5 "South Holland," Richard was ready to make his mark on the race. His pigeons were on a mission, and they would accomplish it with great flair. Battling the wind for 208 kilometers!

Incredible Series of Top Prizes:
Richard's first pigeon landed at 13:59:36, achieving a speed of a staggering 1,391 meters per minute. But wait, it gets even better! Just three minutes later, his second pigeon arrived, followed by the third one within a minute. This led to a spectacular 1-2-3 victory!

A Showcase of Outstanding Performance:
And as if that wasn't enough, out of the 64 pigeons entered, no less than 50 won a prize. The full result of this phenomenal performance is as follows:
