Tunduc Family: 1 International Vierzon
25 May 2023
Barcelona Winners Club represents without a doubt a real challenge of the Romanians towards a great dream, that of conquering the whole world by winning the International Race from Barcelona.
If in the past something seemed impossible, today breeders in Romania can test their potential precisely from the breeding of the late Raymund Hermes, a breeding with a vast pigeon history and an unparalleled track record.
Sorin Zamfir, the coordinator of this project together with Jean Cure-Francois laid the foundations of a collaboration and thus began to "pave" the way to the international races where the pigeons of the 16 teams from Romania compete side by side with the biggest ones in Europe.
If at first the dream was a shy one, after the weekend that just passed, the courage made me forget the mistrust once the pigeon of the Tunduc Family managed to win the International race from Vierzon.
It seems that neither the endurance pigeons of the Germans nor the fast pigeons of the French were as good as the male of the Tunduc Family who managed to impose himself in front of the 2316 participating pigeons. The winner had to cover a distance of 450 km and recorded a speed of 1094 m/min with a strong headwind along the entire flight path of the pigeons.
It's an extraordinary feeling to compete first of all against those whom we all watched in books and from whom I learned pigeon fanciness. It is also a unique feeling to defeat those whom I consider mentors and from whom I have learned a lot, that is, the Kipp Family. I'm glad that we make a good figure there, although it's not easy seeing the hardness of the races and especially the quality of the pigeons, but I sincerely hope that one day I will count in the Barcelona race'' Marius Tunduc told us.
Regarding the origin of the male, he is a descendant of the pigeons that confirmed in Romania, proving once again, that if the quality and especially the competitive level of the domestic championship were still necessary.
His father is reproduced from "Generalul", the winner of the 3rd place General County in 2013, an original pigeon from Olteanu Cosmin combined with "Ebbena", the daughter of the already famous "Linus" of Falco Ebben.
On her mother's side, she is the sister of the County Champion in the Gold Fund Category in 2020, respectively the County Vice-Champion of the As National Category. And as nothing is accidental in life, it is the descent from the pigeons of the mentors of the Tunduc Family combined with the pigeons of Frans Labeeuw and of the project coordinator Sorin Zamfir.
After this resounding success, the dream of the Barcelona race is getting stronger and the scenario of winning other international races on the hills of Althornbach seems more and more real.
