Iditarod 2019 – Day 9

Iditarod 2019 MapSled Dog
[[!!Don’t forget the time change!!]]

Cindy Abbott has scratched at Iditarod. I’m not surprised as she has been taking longer rest stops and slowing. Cindy has climbed Mount Everest and completed the Iditarod. During one race she went 600 miles with a broken pelvis because she lives with the pain of Wegener’s Granulomatosis 24/7 and thought the pain was part of her condition. She continues until she doesn’t believe she can take adequate care of her team.

The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Iditarod, while italics indicates Yukon Quest winners. The numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers. The small “R” indicates a total rookie, while the small “Q” indicates an Iditarod rookie who has completed a Yukon Quest.

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.

This post will be updated during the day, and the map changed on all posts to reflect the current situation.
