Lanarkshire Young Bird Open Race-Ripon

This weeks takes us to the premier young bird race of the season from Ripon, which is around the 155 miles mark back into Scotland from North Yorkshire.The relatively small convoy of 925 & 2 Faulhouse baskets were liberated at 1110 am in a fresh west wind.

Those that competed had to wait till for Saturday marking and a Sunday race for this event.The race was again a difficult affair but the returns were generally better than the previous week.

Like most years there are always lofts that come to the top and maintain their level of consistency.This year John Short of Caldercruix has been one of these lofts and follows up his 1st Open last week with a brilliant 1st,2nd 3rd,4th 5th Open this week.First four all on the same velocity of 1180ypm.This is a remarkable performance and shows how good John and his team of racers are to score at this level in the Lanarkshire Federation.
John has invested in the best of stock and the birds are starting to score at the very top level.

John Short had a brilliant race winning 1st ,2nd,3rd.4th.5th Open
