YQ 300 2017 – Day 5 et fini

Thomas Verin (65) hasn’t had a working tracker for a day. The tracker says he is in Dawson, when he should be around Pelly Crossing. His position is a guess on my part.

Update: after more searching, I discovered a post on Thomas’s Facebook page that he had scratched at McCabe Creek, feeling that his team were too tired to finish.

These are the 8PM CST standings on the YQ 300 based on the Live Tracker [not totally confident about positions] . Lynne & Brian arrived together to finish the YQ300.

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)
12 Jean-Marc Champeval (73)
13 Brian Kandler (72)
14 Lynne Witte (70)Φ

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.
