The Mushers in bold are former winners of the Iditarod. The numbers in parentheses are their Bib numbers. The small “R” indicates a total rookie.

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.

i’ve been pulling for dallas seavey, kind of, just because of the new record it would mean. other than that the deaths (including the moose, evil as they are, sometimes) have put me off sled dog racing again.

also, i didn’t read every detail on every team but was there an all-siberian team this year? if so, i missed it.

in spite of the downside, i thank you for once again keeping us posted!

This year they went back to 16 dog teams from 14, so there are more puppies running, but 2,3,and 4-year-old dogs should be in top shape. I would guess it is related to the large dog habit of gulping their food instead of chewing leading blockages. No thoroughbred teams this year. I’m surprised at the great weather this year
