Strange or not?

Brive 2010

The National long distance race from Brive in Belgium was kind of fair since early birds were clocked throughout the country. The distance is from about 650 to 800 kms. In the past it seldom happened that fanciers entered 10 or more birds for such races; but the times 'they are changing'.

To-day many hope to get some early prizes and publicity by entering masses of birds. But a great name or a big entry is no guarantee to success. Below you find the names of the fanciers who entered more than 25 birds and the number of prizes they won in the first 500. Very strange that none of those mob fliers managed to get a real good result.

Of course you must not judge the quality of their birds by the result of this one race only. MAYBE the birds lacked condition and MAYBE the result of their following race is better. But it is surprising that none of those people with many birds in the race did better. Here we go. Naked figures that do not lie.
