YQ300: Mile 101 Red Team video

Here is some footage of Aliy and her Red team pulling into and leaving Mile 101 checkpoint.

When she arrives you can clearly see the official "checker" sign her in then check she is carrying all her mandatory equipment in the sled: axe, sleeping bag, snow shoes, dog food cooker and fuel and the vet book which holds all the veterinary notes about each dog in the team. If a musher is missing any equipment there are time or monetary penalties that could change the result of the race!

I love that all their tails are high and wagging after they pull into the checkpoint. That says it all!

I just thought the same. Lots of tail wagging coming in, and lots of excitement going back out!
