After completing their mandatory 36-hour rests in Dawson, Allen and Brent are back on the trail! Allen departed 2.5 hours after Brent, who now has a lead of almost 20 miles.
Both mushers are running excellent races, and Brent made a nice move on the Yukon to take the lead. You can be sure, however, that he doesn't consider it a "comfortable" lead. There's a lot of racing ahead and anything can happen, especially when you have very strong competitors like Allen and Hugh (who is only another 1.5 hours back) on your tail.
It's going to be an exciting few days to Whitehorse... Stay tuned!
