It was the top hen "Miss Pipa" that provided a fantastic conclusion to the 2023 racing season. On August 12th, flying from Duiven against 12,877 competitors, and two weeks later on August 26th, flying from Weert against 11,619 competitors, she returned as the fastest pigeon to her loft in Donkerbroek.
