Allen arrived at Sourdough at 6:29pm AST. He was the 4th musher in and did it in about 6 1/2 hours. He left Paxson 42 minutes after Brent Sass, but arrived at Sourdough 2 minutes behind him. Lance Mackey who has rested less than the other front runners arrived at 4:30pm. By my calculations, Sigrid is presently in the lead and still has all 12 dogs.
The cold weather is moving south with -30 to -35 tonight. Luckily the mushers have a warm place to sleep at Sourdough this year. The wind is also picking up. There were rumors of 4 mushers getting turned around on Paxson Lake because of wind conditions and were heading back to Paxson.
We also have reports that Zoya has scratched at Paxson, not confirmed.
Hopefully Aliy has already arrived at Sourdough as well.
