With the completion of the fifth leg of the 19th annual International Stage Stop Sled Dog Race through an area north of Pinedale, Musher Blain “Bud” Streeper remains solidly in first place with a composite time of 13 hours, 20 minutes. Behind him is John Stewart of Scotland with 13 hours, 48 minutes. Streeper and Stewart have been among the most consistent mushers in the race and don’t appear to ready to back off. Mushers yesterday faced temperatures well below zero as they made their way along a course in the Upper Green River and Cora area north of Pinedale. Race Director Dan Carter says animal shelters along each stop along the way are donated food supplies from the race sponsor, Pedigree. Today, the race sets out from the Big Piney/Marbleton area.
