Still the King

Jeff King has been patient and persistent. He has been down this trail before and he has a capable team of huskies from the homestead that have been rising in the ranks the last half of the race. It is hard to believe that he was 12 hours off the lead in Iditarod, but now he is less than 1/2 hour from Mitch.  Historically, if you look at Jeff's times from arrival to Koyuk to arrival to Nome, in recent years he runs it a couple hours faster than Mitch.  Look for Aliy and Ray Jr. to also potentially pass by Mitch. The Viking Joar Ulsom is a wild card, but it looks like he still has some gas in tank. Wow, what an exciting Iditarod!
