Streeper Wins Fifth IPSSSDR

Streeper

Blaine “Buddy” Streeper of Fort Nelson, British Columbia won the International Pedigree Sled Dog Race for the fifth time Saturday following previous wins in 2004, 2010, 2011 and 2012.  John Stewart of Scotland finished only minutes behind after the week-long race.  However, of the eight legs, IPSSSDR officials for the first time ever had to cancel one leg out of Kemmerer.  Race Director Dan Carter says the weather kept closing the trail. Carter explains it had snowed quite a bit overnight, and when trail crews went out to mark and break the trail, they found as fast as they could open the trail, it drifted back in with up to three feet of fresh snow. Carter says while participation this year with 16 competitors was lower than some past years, the race still drew some of the best of the best in international dog sled racing.  Says Carter: “I expect that we’ll have additional teams next year, but for some reason, across the board it seemed like a lot of [sled dog] races were slightly lower in numbers.” Jackson Hole’s Stacey Teasley, meanwhile finished the race in seventh place with a composite time of 20 hours, 44 minutes.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
