Mushers in the Middle of the Pack Remaining Competitive

Iditarod mushers running outside of this year’s top-20 are just as competitive as the front of the pack, but they have different reasons for travelling the trail.It takes a lot of effort to develop a competitive dog team. That’s exactly what Chatanika musher Jodi Bailey is doing with her group of young dogs. This is Bailey’s third Iditarod.“I’m still learning a lot about the mechanics of the race and in a lot of ways, Iditarod is like a chess game. There are so many checkpoints and possibilities, but in general we’re having a lot of fun, they seem to be keeping good spirits and good weight, so all in all that’s what I was hoping to be able to say at this point in the race,” Bailey said.Read more here: http://www.alaskapublic.org/2013/03/09/mushers-in-the-middle-of-the-pack-remaining-competitive/
