SUMOS – Short / Middle / Long

We have had a few enquiries about our SUMO family’s racing abilities. The distance and velocities that they perform at.

I did a quick analysis and used the SANPO best bird standards as the guideline.

Short distance – 100 km – 500km
Middle distance – 450 km – 650 km
Long distance – 600 km – 1000 km

The stats of the SUMO family 1st and 2nd generation pigeons for TOP 3 club positions, in our loft only – using available data, are as follows:

Podium positions
SHORT DISTANCE – 36% TOP 3
MIDDLE DISTANCE – 30% TOP 3
LONG DISTANCE – 34% TOP 3

They have won on any velocity but they were at their best when it got a bit tougher with velocities < 1250mpm.

As can be seen a truly allround family of pigeons.
