Doctor Martial Maindrelle is a very busy man, his practice and his patients leave him very little free time for pigeons, especially in these times of global pandemic.
After a start to the season below expectations due to a lack of flying time, training and preparation, but also due to capricious weather where the pushing winds dominated which undoubtedly put the colony at a disadvantage. The first victory came at the Pressac competition (345 km), the third competition of the season, which was a very selective competition with staggered entries for everyone except Martial where the arrivals followed one another at a good pace.
On this day Martial was more serene because the previous week the pigeons had shown the beginnings of the rise in form, with a very good percentage of prizes, 47% of prizes on 126 pigeons engaged of which 37 prizes by 10, not bad for a loft which was not yet at the top!
