Chezik Dominates Rondy Sled Dog Race

Ken Chezik of File Lake, Mich., decisively won the 2012 Anchorage Fur Rendezvous World Championship Sled Dog Race on Sunday. Egil Ellis, last year’s champion, posted the best time for the third and final day of the race, more than a minute faster than Chezik. It was enough to pull him past fellow Alaskan Arliegh Reynolds, who started the day in third place. But it was not enough to overtake the leaders. When the numbers were added up, Kevin Cook of Saskatchewan, racing in the Rondy for the first time, held onto second place.Chezik, 52, has been a factor in Alaska sprint races for the past 10 years. He beat Ellis to win the Exxon Mobil Open in 2008 and finished third in last year’s Rondy race.Read more here:
