Yukon Quest 2011 – Day 2

Yukon Quest trail

Sled DogThese are the arrival positions at Braeburn, and all but the last five are back on the trail. While Johannes Rygh is running near the front, I’m a bit concerned that the rookie musher had to leave two dogs behind. Hugh left first, but Sebastian is less than an hour behind with Wade Marrs, Brent Sass, Hans, and Kelly Griffin making up rest of the pre-4AM group.

Allen Dennis had to leave 4 dogs at Braeburn, which sounds like they went through the ice. If you take a dog into a heated area the dog is automatically dropped, but the dog is in trouble if it gets soaked through and you don’t get it warm and dry.

The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Yukon Quest, the numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers, the small “I” indicates a Quest rookie who has competed in the Iditarod, and the small “R” indicates a total rookie.

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