Allen in the Lead

Allen is racing down the Yukon River towards Dawson City and is currently in the lead. He is running about 10 miles ahead of Hugh Neff and it looks like Lance Mackey is still resting at 40 Mile. There is still 35 miles to go for the Black Team to reach Dawson and their 36 hour layover.

GO ALLEN!!

This is so exciting! I can't believe the dogs are racing so hard after having already gone 500 miles! I have somewhere I'm supposed to be tonight but can't leave because I'm glued to the tracker.

Been doing the maths and Allen's lower on rest than Lance/Hugh, so I'm trying to figure out if they can catch him. Go Allen!

He seems to have slowed some in that tight river bend at around mile 490 - what's the trail like just there? Will be watching Lance's tracker through there to see if he too gets held up by trail conditions.

How many of the dogs on Allen's team have done the race before (particularly in this direction), so *know* that Dawson isn't far?

Woo!

After being gone all day, came home to find Allen is #1! Go Allen! Will this be the first husband/wife team who have both won the Yukon Quest! Melissa....regardless of whether or not Allen wins, you are going to hear some exciting tales while on your ANWR trip!!
