Yukon Quest 2020 – Day 9

Yukon Quest map even years

Sled DogLive Tracking shows Michelle at Pelly Crossing with Brent about two hours behind at 10:25AM CST. Dave is set to leave Dawson in a half hour with Chase leaving in the afternoon and Olivia in the evening.

The Canadian Rangers reported an excellent trail out of Dawson, but significant moose activity on the trail to Pelly Crossing.

Brent blew through Pelly Crossing to take the lead back from Michelle who was resting there. Dave Dalton scratched at Dawson because some of his dogs had contracted a stomach virus. Chase Tingle also decided to scratch at Dawson for the “good of his team”. [Dawson has road connections and the dog handlers and truck were there for the 36-hour break.]

The Current Standings at 7:30PM CST ( 5:30PM PST):

Beyond Pelly Crossing
1 Brent Sass (15)
2 Michelle Phillips (11)
At Pelly Crossing
3 Cody Strathe (2)
Beyond Dawson
4 Allen Moore (4)
5 Torsten Kohnert (9)
6 Ryne Olson (8)
7 Nora Själin (6)R
8 Rob Cooke (12)
9 Richie Beattie (1)
10 Pat Noddin (13)R
11 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.
