YB Road Training By DJ "Joel Layaoen"

 

pag dating ng 3 months ng ibon malakas na silang mag loft fly, pag umabot na sa 45 minutes pataas ang loft fly ng yb, titignan ko muna ang body nila at kung ok naman ang body nila i start 5 km paikot yan (W,E,S & N)by group sila, wala akong single toss. isang beses lang,2 x a week ang bato (Mon and Friday) bali 2 weeks lang sila sa 5km, then bago ako umalis nilalagyan ko na yon ng tubig (tea/honey) at durative mixture (feeds) sa hapon na yong normal feeds.

 

after ng 5KM, 15km na ako sa way na kung saan ang laban ng ibon (group)same thing bago ko ilagay sa basket tinitignan ko ang mga galaw ng ibon at condition nila, kapag wala sa ayos ang ibon never kong ilalagay yon sa basket, titignan ko kung ano ang depekto niya parorondahin ko yon after 2 days na ginamot ko siya ang mauuna sa ronda then pawawala ako ng by 3 na mga ibon makikita ko kung ano ok na ang ibon.

Kung ang location mo ay nasa gawing North East, don ko papadaanin ang aking ibon sa gawing north east, hindi sa north west dahil sasama yon sa kalaban niya mag hahatid pa. Ginagawi ko ang mga ibon sa parte na straight sa location ko, para mas maiksi ang liliparin niya. tignan mo lang ang mapa kung saan mo padadaanin ang ibon mo sa madali nilang malilipad.

 

Halimbawa nasa gawing Antipolo ang location mo bakit mo ibabato sa Tabang ang ibon mo, kung puwede naman padaanin sa kabilang parte ng bulacan tulad ng Santa Maria, kunin mo ang straight line papunta sa location mo, hindi yong lihis sa location mo, dahil kapag binato mo yan sa parte ng Tabang sasama yan sa mga tiga Manila, ganon yon, dapat makuha ng ibon mo kung saan dapat siyang bumitiw o himiwalay sa group.

 

5KM (paikot) one time lang

15 KM, 40 KM, 15 KM, 80 KM, 25 KM. One time lang (tapos club training na)

 

pag tumaas ako susunod na bitiw ko ibaba ko uli para di mabigla at mawala sa condition ang ibon. Importante sa lahat obserbahan mo ang condition ng ibon mo bago mo ilalagay sa basket.

 

2 weeks before the race pag mamasydan ko ang mga ilalaban at gagawan ko na ng plano para ma motivate ko sila bago mag race.

YB Road Breaking Point By TDV "Tommy De Vera"

 

I talked about tossing your birds at around 90 kms lately as many as you can before the races and during the races (Mid-week) by three's. What I would like to emphasize is toss them at your identified approximate "breakpoint" area. How to do it?

 

1) Buy a map of the Philippines, the big one.

2) Mark with red dots all the race points your club will be racing.

3) Mark your loft also in the map with a red dot.

4) Put a line from each race point (red dots) you marked to your loft.

 

Note: you will observe that the lines you have drawn converge as they near your loft.

 

5) From your loft, measure approximately 90 kms to the center of the converging lines from your race points marked.

6) Look for a place there, nearest the highway or accessible road where you could easilly go for your "breakpoint" training tosses. It may not be the exact identified place but that's not important. In my loft at QC, my "breakpoint" is towards the left of Gapan for North races. In the south, I have 2 breakpoints, one for over the lake and another under the lake routes because the lake made the difference.

 

Note: From my experience it was applicable to different race distances but very effective in short to middle when it is not a smash race.

 

Why toss at @90 kms? It is a distance where most birds fly home without having to stop and rest, and that's the behaviour we want to train our birds. During the races most of the time they are in groups but a bird trained on a "breakpoint" usually are more motivated to fly faster and do not overfly their lofts upon recognizing areas near their "breakpoint" . Usually humihiwalay na sila sa grupo at sila na magdadala. Hindi na sila ang sasama sa loft ng iba at magsasayang ng oras.

 

This system is only applicable to fanciers who have the time to do it and can afford to do it. It is more fun to do it with some fanciers to economize and enjoy the trips.

 

Happy racing guys!
