Yukon Quest 2017 – Day 7

Yukon Quest map odd years

Sled DogHank DeBruin and his 8 Siberians made it to Dawson just before midnight local time, and Brent made it to Eagle at 5AM AKST [8AM CST]

The Finish line in Fairbanks has been moved off the river because the ice may not be thick enough for the teams and spectators.

Yuka Honda scratched at Dawson for ‘well-being of her dogs’. The loss of Firefly was too big a burden.

In other sled dog news, Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race restart to move to Fairbanks. I assume they will use the 2015 route, but they moved the finish of the Quest because of questionable ice on the Tanana, so the Iditarod may have to get creative.
