Yukon Quest map odd years

Sled DogA slow day ahead consisting of people pulling into Dawson to sleep and repair equipment.

Speaking of equipment, Torsten Kohnert showed up at Dawson without his ax, and had to get one before he could be logged in. To add weight to the meaning of ‘mandatory’, he was fined $500.

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.
