Aaron Peck from Grand Prairie, Alberta, Canada, posted the fastest time on Day Five of the 2013 International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race while on the 42-mile trail from Louis Lake Parking Lot on South Pass near Lander.  It was Peck’s third day in a row with the fastest time for the stage, this time averaging 13.8 MPH with 10 dogs. Blayne “Bud” Streeper from Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada, was second for the day, while Lars Lindh from Kiruna, Sweden, was third.  Streeper – defending his 2012 IPSSSDR win – maintains the 2013 overall lead so far with a total time of 15:04:38, but Peck is closing in on that time in second place overall with 15:09:30.  Teams have now traveled to Big Piney/Marbleton for a Welcome Mushers reception there and Thursday’s race beginning 9:00 am from the starting line at Middle Piney Parking lot.

  • Wish list season is upon us again - October 17, 2014
    Late October is a bad time of year for me. If I were independently wealthy, it wouldn’t be so bad. But I’m not. I’m a journalist, so it’s a little painful.
