Yukon Quest 2020 – Day 6

Yukon Quest map even years

Sled DogMichelle should be in Dawson shortly while Allen and Cody are 30 miles back. Since Brent was the last to start he is truly the race leader as the other teams have to serve their start differential in Dawson.

At 2:30PM CST everyone is beyond Eagle and Cody and Allen are almost in Dawson.

At 5:30PM CST Olivia has crested American Summit. It’s all downhill from here.

At 10PM CST no changes until tomorrow morning. The last 6 teams are still in Alaska. The leaders are on their mandatory layovers.

The Current Standings at 5:30PM CST ( 3:30PM PST):

At Dawson
1 Brent Sass (15)
2 Michelle Phillips (11)
3 Cody Strathe (2)
4 Allen Moore (4)
Beyond Eagle
5 Torsten Kohnert (9)
6 Ryne Olson (8)
7 Nora Själin (6)R
8 Rob Cooke (12)
9 Pat Noddin (13)R
10 Richie Beattie (1)
11 Chase Tingle (14)
12 Dave Dalton (10)
13 Olivia Webster (7)R

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.

All posts on the Yukon Quest can be seen by clicking on the sled dog or selecting “Yukon Quest” from the Category box on the right sidebar.
