THE Titans roll on. I refer, of course, to the brothers Naiker, who once again proved their dominance in the first race of the season from Paul Roux on Saturday.

Liberated at 8 am, the first arrival was recorded at 10:57,02, to record a velocity of 1 540,560 metres per minute.

They then clocked at 11:16; 11:20; 11:24; 11:31; 11:36 and 11:39, taking the first four positions as well as sixth, ninth and 10th positions, separated by R.D. Lofts.

It looks like a really Titanic family challenge is on as R.D. Lofts took fifth, seventh, eighth, 11th and 12th positions.

“Old Grizzle” had his nose firmly rubbed in the dirt on Saturday, having allowed newcomer Leon Potgieter to race from his loft. The outcome was that Mr Potgieter’s birds arrived home before “Old Grizzle’s”. To add insult to injury, four of Potgieter’s birds returned home and only one of “Old Grizzle’s” did. Life is just not fair, but congratulations Leon.

Flying distance from Paul Roux was 272 kilometres.

Next week we move to Senekal at a distance of approximately 290 km, with an 8 am liberation.

Paul Roux results:

Naiker brothers — 1st 1540:560; 2nd 1378:733; 3rd 1358:227; 4th 1333:093; 6th 1288:453; 9th 1261:031 and 10th 1243:389.

R.D. Lofts — 5th 1303:605; 7th 1266:639; 8th 1261:167; 11th 1198:483; 12th 1168:168.

L. Potgieter — 13th 1152:774; 14th 1151:072; 16th 858: 604 and 17th 741:415.

T.R. Tatham — 15th 865:960.

Next week Senekal, until then, “good flying”.
