YQ 300 2017 – Day 4

The 300 goes out to the Stepping Stone hospitality stop and then returns to Pelly Crossing for the finish. The trail between Pelly and Stepping Stone can get a bit crowded with the two-way traffic.

Craig Houghton (67) decided to scratch at McCabe’s Creek. Claudia’s tracker died last night and she stayed in 4th place despite what was reported.

These are the 9:00PM CST standings on the YQ 300 based on the Live Tracker [not totally confident about positions] .
Finished
1 Michelle Phillips (58)
2 Aliy Zirkle (56)
3 Nathaniel Hamlyn (66)
4 Claudia Wickert (62)
5 Magnus Kaltenborn (64)
6 Gerry Willomitzer (71)
7 Jacob Heigers (60)
8 Fabien Cayer-Barrioz (55)
9 Roger Lee (53)
10 Marcelle Fressineau (52)
11 Jason Biasetti (54)
Beyond Pelly Crossing
12 Jean-Marc Champeval (73)
13 Thomas Verin (65)
At Pelly Crossing
14 Lynne Witte (70)
15 Brian Kandler (72)

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.

All posts on the Yukon Quest can be seen by clicking on the sled dog or selecting “Yukon Quest” from the Category box on the right sidebar.
