Aaron Peck of Grand Prairie, Alberta is back in second place after Day Six of the International Pedigree State Stop Sled Dog Race.  Blayne Streeper of Fort Nelson, British Columbia has maintained a solid lead since Day Two and John Stewart of Aberdeen, Scotland has remained in the top three as well.  The race finished its first of two days in the Evanston, Wyoming area with a 45-mile leg to be followed today by another 45-mile leg.  The race has earned the reputation of being one of the best anywhere and is often ranked with the famous Iditarod .  Bruce Magnusson of Manchester, Michigan says there is a reason he has competed seven years straight.  Magnusson says it is difficult to point to one single thing with outstanding competition, vet support, the Pedigree Sponsorship and everything the race provides to all the participants.  Says Magnusson, “It’s made my twice the musher that I ever thought I could be.”  Magnusson also points to the social plusses of the event, saying it’s “like a reunion party to come here and see the friends we’ve made around the world who all come for this race” and he adds that that the people in the towns treat the mushers like they’re family too.  With regard to this year’s race, Magnusson says he believes has attracted the best group of mushers from start to finish he has ever competed with. The race concludes Saturday in Park City Utah.
