Iditarod 2018 – Day 2

Iditarod 2018 MapSled DogThe racing order is starting to sort itself out but you can’t be sure of the actual order until after the 24-hour stop when the start differential is adjusted. Aaron Burmeister has made a significant gain of 45 places while Nicolas Petit is up 43. You have to wait.

Zoya DeNure has scratched at Yentna. They don’t say why but it is probably a puppy problem. Update: It was her health that was questionable.

Tara Cicatello has been at Skwenta since 8AM CST. I wonder if they missed her leaving or scratching. Her team was moving at a respectable 8mph. This is why I have the notice that the standings are official but may not be accurate.

Standings at 9:30PM CST:
