The second middle distance race in the province of Antwerp was from a new location namely Sermaises (FR). For the top colony Van Elsacker-Jepsen this is for a distance of 369km.  That they have been top for over 30 years within pigeon sport is what they still proved to be the past weekend.

With their top racing hen 'Glory' they won the 1st Sermaises (369km) against 3,735 old and yearling birds in Union Antwerp and was also the fastest against a total of 13,586 basketed pigeons in the province of Antwerp!

And as icing on the cake a full sister of 'Glory' won the 6th Sermaises (369km) against 3,735 old and yearling birds in Union Antwerp.
