Iditarod Update

Above, a view of from the Iditarod Insider GPS Tracker. Click to enlarge.

After chasing Jeff King down the Yukon from Ruby to Kaltag Rick Mackey has made his move and pushed through the Kaltag checkpoint without a rest, leaving King behind for the first time in this race. But it might not be King that Mackey is most concerned about as he was followed closely by 3 time Yukon Quest champ Canadian Hans Gatt.

A quick check of the stats shows that Gatt has posted the fastest times between the Yukon River checkpoints. Mackey may be running for his life while Jeff King who opted to rest in Kaltag may have ceded that point to Gatt.

Let the real race begin!
