Our goal is your enjoyment!
have heard some nonsense rumors about Old Birds going to the Derby
Arona final race. This is not true and makes no sense. The Derby Arona
Blue Blood birds navigate the Ocean alone, they have been highly
trained and succeed because they are the best in the world . To
confirm, some old birds are used but only for the trainings.
People should understand our effort in order to help the birds in the trainings.
OF COURSE! NO OLD BIRDS IN THE FINAL!
We never done and we will never do!
Arona race is the hardest race in the world. We can compare with no other OLR race around the world. We have our own race and it is not possible same to other OLR races.
All OLR races are doing that they want to make enjoyment to the participants. ARONA contest is unique in this matter. The winner pigeons are the winner pigeons, all pigeons same opportunities. No matter how the trainings were done. The trainings before the Final Race are ONLY TRAININGS with a prizes and opportunity to win 3 cars and enjoy it.
Our mission is save the race, save the pigeons until final race trying to avoid the disaster losses same as in the past, save the money of participants and assures the future of the race.
There are no other 110% transparent race as Derby Arona in the world. Participants that like Arona Race welcome. Participants believing in our honesty and good work welcome...

Gran Canaria Island Training is booked!
Under weather forecast and as scheduled, we will try the next Gran Canaria Island Training on 19th Feb.
Survival Race is booked!
After 3 successful Sea Races and under weather forecast we will try the first CAR RACE (Survival Race) on 11th Feb.
We like to inform what the reason we cannot make more sea races:
1. First to all the wind and the height of wave not allow us to sailing with the baskets in the boat. We will not take this risk.
2. From middle of the next week the south wind will came and we must avoid the risk of “calima” this can cause a long delay in the first Survival Race and it is not good for the pigeons psychologically.
3. We will not make a long sea races because this is a real risk that the pigeons can fly to other island and it will cause huge losses same to last year.
4. Pigeons were trained from 50 and 60 Km previously to the sea races. It is enough to ahead a 95 Km Survival Race.
CAR RACE - SURVIVAL RACE
Sea Training-2 + Sea Training-3 Scheduled!
Under weather forecast and sea stations, the best option for the next sea Trainings is on 5th & 6th Feb.
Sea Training Scheduled!
Under weather forecast and sea stations, the best option for the first Sea Training is on 4th Feb. The Sea Trainings purpose is only to keep out the pigeons's fear to fly over the sea and accustom them to fly from the sea to the Island.
Over the Sea Races
We are looking for the best days to make the sea races in order to avoid losses. This means the best weather condition and the best option for a boat.
After the last 2 difficult trainings we are going to make an 30 Km training in the coast from Gran Canaria Island direction to fit the orientation and increase the moral of the pigeons. We are looking to hold this race on Friday. After that, we will start with the sea trainings.
We are ready to Training-10
9th training informations
A 100% sure source report us minimum 1 pigeon in La Palma island. In order to let the participants 100% information, no GPS were used in this training. The unique option possible is the only that we can to improve! The other matter it is orientation mystery.
A leisure day in Arona-TENERIFE Loft
All pigeons are already flying in the Arona loft. In the next weeks we will make the first loft control and the individual photos.

LATE PIGEONS LIST FINAL RACE
Hello fanciers, participants and visitors,
In the morning from final day we are with many fanciers at breakfast, and all say, it looks today for a good race, the weather looks good, all we know that the wind came, but it was harder than we think. We have had a hard but nice final race, all the people at the final day, I think have had a good day at the loft. Only we must wait a long time for the first pigeon. Jose and his team made a very good job, and all the people that have handle the pigeons before final race basketing saying that all the pigeons are in very good condition.
It was only the hard wind, and over the sea, nobody known’s what goes on. Only 5 day´s after race we became a mail that 4 pigeons are in a loft in Morocco, and many other are on different Islands so we hope many more pigeons returned.
Now we are a week later, and many ,many fanciers ring, mail or speak with us in this time and say:
WE WILL SEND AGAIN! And we know it. It´s not for nothing: THE HARDEST RACE IN THE WORLD!!
But we will send pigeons to this race, because at home in the lofts you lost pigeons at the races, and you select after race season pigeons out. and here they are tested, and only the best can win. In other OLR they lost more pigeons in one year than here in four years, in all races we know, you lost pigeons…
The fanciers say it is all so nice you can see it all live, became sms, see the nice video´s, it´s absolutely 100% TRANSPARENT.
You think you race at home your own pigeon, and that in the winter at the couch near the heating. Because it´s all direct LIVE.
We for us must say many many thank you to jose and his team for all their work, drinking, food all it was perfect organized, the pigeons looks good, all in perfect condition and it was nice to see old friends and meet some new. We must say a special thank you to my co-coordinatorts creemers and zoon from Belgium, Mark williams from Wales and Alexander Gebel from Germany.
We have send over 500 pigeons to the race 2013, and we will do it again!!!
The new dates are:

THE PIGEONS KEEP RETURNING AFTER THE RACE CLOSED
We are surprise today two pigeons returned from Final race. Many pigeons had returned from HOTSPOT races in the past months and many more pigeons will do. The are who speak about sea loses, in their hell bent effort to justify their point of view, would have one believe that the pigeon that chooses to exercise its free choice to seek greener pastures in other islands must be viewed as mortality. In Canary Islands more of 50.000 are breeding and tested every year.
From all entrances we still having about +100 Pigeons in the loft and many more will back. This pigeons will be auctioned in the next months.
