Saturday I took a break from training and drop bag preparations to be a fan at the start of the Yukon Quest.
Here are a few of my pictures of the teams starting -
The Incredible Lance Mackey
Mike Ellis - of course this is the team we here at NorthWapiti cheer the loudest for! Go Team Tsuga!!!!
Pierre Antoine-Heritier's Siberian Huskies
Zack Steer. I think this is a team to watch on both the Quest AND Iditarod. Zack is the 'real deal' and a true credit to the sport!
Kelley Griffin. Kelley and I were race judges on Quest last year and I think she is one of the coolest woman. The boys better watch over their shoulder for her.
Katie Davis's team
I'll be watching closely and wish all the teams safe and happy trails!!!
