Streeper Leads IPPSDR

Marshall

“Bud” Streeper of British Columbia, averaging 16.5 miles per hour on the 38-mile course from Pinedale to Cora, Wyoming, held onto second place in day three of the International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race yesterday. Streeper was last year’s champion in the annual race. Anna Bjorklund from Sweden, once again came in second. Following Day Three’s race, teams departed for Big Piney for a Dutch Oven reception. One contender seems like a rather unlikely dogsled racer hailing from Jamaica. Newton Marshall says the idea was pitched to him by his employer as a way to branch out into something different. Marshall, who is currently in 17th place, says there are others from Jamaica involved in dogsled racing in Minnesota. Marshall has been learning the sport while working with Iditarod Champion Lance Mackey in Alaska. Today, the race travels 64 miles on a course in the Big Piney/Marbleton area.

  • 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. It’s rough because this is when the Christmas catalogs start hitting the mailbox, and they’re chock-full of gear I wish I had. From the […]
