Yukon Quest 2014 – Day 12
Hank and the Siberians arrived at Carmacks just before 1PM CST. The Quest Facebook page is using a picture of the team for their banner. The temperature on the trail between McCabe’s and Carmacks was -50°F – only mad dogs and mushers… After leaving McCabe’s both Jerry and Brian camped for a while to await the sun and warmer temperatures.
Ken and John should be at the finish around 2PM CST. Everyone is now moving, but there have been delays in the tracking – not even electrons want to move when it’s this cold.
Ken and John made it to the finish, in that order, and Hank, Mandy, and Brian are at Carmacks.
And then there is Jerry Joinson – would you believe he broke another sled. He is definitely the Red Lantern, because he is going to get 8-hours added to his arrival.
This year’s race will definitely fall in the category of ‘memorable’.
Standings at 11:30PM CST (9:30PM PST):
1 Allen Moore (8)
2 Hugh Neff (14)
3 Matt Hall (3)R
4 Ken Anderson (6)
5 John Schandelmeier (17)
6 Torsten Kohnert (13)R
7 Curt Perano (16)R
8 Hank DeBruin (18)
9 Brian Wilmshurst (9)
10 Mandy Nauman (11)R
11 Jerry Joinson (4)
These are the official standings. That means they are official, not that they are correct. Things jump around a lot as people decide to update the standings. This problem is especially bad in the back of the pack, as no one bothers to update those standings when the lead is changing.
The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Yukon Quest, the numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers, and the small “R” indicates a rookie.
Note: This post will be updated during the day, and the map changed on all posts to reflect the current situation.
