Iditarod day nine: (Tracker video): Dallas opens up into White Mountain

Tuesday,  03/17/15  01:55 PM

I recorded this little video of the #Iditarod 2015's awesome GPS Tracker, a speeded up version of the action which has taken place over the last 18 hours, showing defending champion Dallas Seavey (#46 in the tracker) extending his lead as he blasts from Koyuk into White Mountain by way of Elim, followed by Aaron Burmeister (#63) and Dallas' father Mitch Seavey (#18).  Further back racing for fourth and first woman bragging rights are Jessie Royer (#3) and the past three years' runner up Aliy Zirkle (#32).

All the teams will take a manditory 8-hour break in White Mountain, and will resume racing late tonight.  You might think its over but its never over 'till its really over, as everyone found out last year!  Stay tuned...
