Black Team First Into Two Rivers

At 2.31pm Allen and the Black team raced into the Two Rivers checkpoint in first position. Here they have a mandatory eight hour layover for the dogs and mushers to rest up before the final push into Fairbanks.

He came in with Scout and Quito in the lead and nine happy, wagging tails behind them. Hugh Neff followed them in 16 minutes later.

Incredible! They are coming in so fast and so excited! It's amazing that they have run 900 miles back to their own home.

HAPPY team!

Any idea what time we should start looking for Allen in Fairbanks?

Congratulations guys....You have the sassiest looking team in the Quest. They are beautiful. I would like to see a team look like that after 50-70 miles but 950 miles, plus or minus a few is fantastic....and it all thanks to you both....
