Young Alaskan musher winsthe Yukon Quest 2011
A third-generation Iditarod musher from Alaska has won the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, that retraces gold-mining routes from the Klondike era.
Dallas Seavey, 23, of Willow, Alaska, finished the race at 11:05 p.m. local time on Tuesday (Feb 15th) to claim nearly $30,000 in prize money in his first running of the hotly contested Yukon Quest. He crossed the finish line in 10 days, 11 hours and 53 minutes.
German-born competitor Sebastian Schneulle, who now hails from Whitehorse in Canada's Yukon territory, arrived 33 minutes later to garner second place.
The Quest, which runs between Whitehorse and Fairbanks, has a reputation for being even tougher than the better-known Iditarod Sled Dog Race from Anchorage to Nome, and this year was especially difficult.
The musher who had been leading for much of the race, Hugh Neff, had to drop out after being rescued from a blizzard at the top of a mountain pass. Another contender, 2010 champion Hans Gatt, dropped out after falling in a river and being rescued by Schneulle.
