The AviRings Derby 2021 will be a unique one loft race in many ways. First of all, it will be the very first race in Europe in which all racing pigeons will be wearing a GPS tracking ring, it will be the first race that will feature separation of the pigeons in the competition phase and it will also bring one more important difference in comparison to other similar derbies: loft darkening in the training phase. This will ensure fair conditions for all pigeons participating in the competitions, keep your pigeon champions in the best possible shape for the finals and raise the entire competition to a whole new level. Are you ready to find out more?
When your pigeons are at a race, you probably feel a bit restless. How are they doing, what’s happening with them and are they doing well at races? All these are the usual questions all pigeon fanciers ask themselves during the races, but we’ve got some great news: at the AviRings Derby 2021, you won’t have to ask yourself these questions – because you will already have all the answers.
Widowhood is a well-known concept in the world of modern pigeon racing; almost every pigeon fancier practises it in one form or another. However, most racing pigeons are only separated by gender once they reach adulthood. At the AviRings Derby 2021, we’ve decided to take things one step further to make the pigeons even faster and guarantee that they can go even further. This means that the pigeons in the race will be separated by gender as soon as they reach sexual maturity.
