Musher number 11 out of the start chute on Saturday will be Allen Moore and the SPK BLACK team! Woohoo!
The whole team arrived in Whitehorse this afternoon in time for the start banquet and bib draw. It was a full house at the Convention Centre packed with fans, supporters, volunteers, officials, vets, handlers and, of course, mushers.
