Yukon Quest 2017 – Day 8
At 11AM CST (8AM AKST) everyone except Hank is in Alaska.
At 4PM CST Matt is about an hour ahead of Brent out of Slaven’s and Hank & the Sibs are headed for Alaska.
It looks like it is going to be Matt & Brent battling it out to the end. If they wear each other out, Hugh will pounce.
The Current Standings at 9:00PM CST ( 6:00PM AKST):
1 Brent Sass (14)
2 Hugh Neff (9)
3 Matt Hall (20)
4 Allen Moore (8)
5 Ed Hopkins (18)
6 Paige Drobny (7)
7 Katherine Keith (19)R
8 Torsten Kohnert (21)
9 Ryne Olson (15)
10 Jessie Royer (1)R
11 Brian Wilmshurst (16)
12 Dave Dalton (13)
13 Rob Cooke (4)
14 Gaetan Pierrard (10)
15 Sébastien Dos Santos Borges (5)R
16 Ben Good (3)R
17 Hank DeBruin (17)
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.
