The All Alsakan Sweepstakes

The race began with the honorary bid number 1 leaving (theoretical) Nome at 10 am this morning...Eric is in Nome but states he has seen no musher's...of course not they are racing...

It seems the rivalry from the Iditarod may make an appearance this race, with no rules. Jeff King pulled out of Nome running 16 dogs in ninth place at 10:18 this morning....Lance Mackey followed him out with 12 dogs at 10:28...

Current standing are...neither is in first...yet!

Mackey has moved from 14th at the start to 8th just 4 checkpoints into the race. King is holding his position of ninth...the fastest musher wins this race...and at the moment...

Jim Lanier left Nome in third position...he is in first as of now...

Conner Thomas left in first position and is in second now...

Ramey Brooks is in third...but began in 14th....Nome musher...has ran this trail many times is my guess...and may be the only one who can keep ahead of Lance...and not be caught again...


Stay tuned for the next update...or you can follow along yourself...

Their leader board is much moree difficult to follow in compariosn tothe Iditirod. Looks like a race between King and Macky again, perhaps Linder.
