EMIEL DENYS won 2nd prize  FCI-RACE SPAIN 2009

                                               in SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELLA  with B09/3009144



 Santiago de Compostela,

 situated in the northwest of Spain in the region of Galicia, has been a cultural and scientific meeting point since the middle age. The city was born from a legend: the discover in 813 A.D. of the sepulchre of St. James The Apostle who was behaded in 44 A.D. in Palestine. King Alfonso II visited the site and ordered a modest temple and monastery to be built, erecting the center around which the city later grew.


       On August the 8th was the final of the first FCI-one loft race of the season.The other 2 races are in FRITZLAR GERMANY on September the 5th and on September the 13rd in MORAHALOM, HUNGARY. It was the first time that the FCI race in Spain was held in the very famous place for roman catholic people SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA in Galicia.

Before it was always in Catalunya.I am under the impression that racing in Catalunya was more difficult.


On August the 8th the temperature was about 22 C° and there was a headwind.The pigeons were liberated at 8 AM in AVILA. Two pigeons came together and the pigeon from the Chinese fancier Huang Jian won 1st prize, beating the one from Emiel Denys by 1 second.Velocity 1116,051 meter per minute.Mr; Huang Jian also won 3rd prize.
