Like He Needs It

Lance Mackey (47) picked up another $2,500 in gold nuggets for being First to the Coast in Unalakleet, and he’s planning to leave before Sebastian Schnuelle (34) gets in. The temperature dropped to -30° which is a normal winter temperature for his kennel in Fairbanks, so his team reacted to the temperature by picking up the pace.

It’s hard for people who don’t live there to understand, but +30° is a problem for dogs raised in the interior. The temperature drop helped him widen his lead. This race is his to lose at this point.
