Mushers Weather Sub Zero Temps

Sub zero temperatures being endured by the dog sled teams participating in this year’s International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race have not proven much of a hindrance to the teams.  That’s according to Race Director Dan Carter who says the racing teams are not only prepared for it, but used to the cold. He explains that mushers put coats on dogs that have lighter coats.  He adds, “Fortunately we have not had a lot of wind.  It’s that combination of cold and and wind that you want to pay special attention to.”  He also says the mushers themselves are a hearty bunch equipped with good clothing, so they are faring well as well.  He says “We kind of like this weather to be honest!”  Carter admits, however the cold does seem to be taking its toll on the crowds along the way. John Stewart from Scotland moved up to first place during the Big Piney-Marbleton leg of the race while overall leader “Buddy” Streeper dropped back to fourth.  Still, Carter says it is unlikely Streeper will lose that overall lead.  However, if anyone were to overtake him now, it would be Stewart. Jackson Hole’s Stacey Teasely remains in ninth place.  The race concludes Saturday in Evanston.
