Moira will be working non-stop over the next 48 hours to bring you "live" race coverage from the CB300. I will be doing what I can to help her remotely with that monumental task. Whatever photos or video she sends me via iPhone, I will post as soon as possible!
In addition to what we post here, there are some excellent coverage sources elsewhere:
This coverage is getting better all the time, enhanced this year with mushers' initials in the identifying pins.
In this partial screen shot, it looks like Aliy has (momentarily) pulled her Red Team ahead of Allen's Black Team, just a few minutes out from the start.
Let the speculation begin! (Note: It's probably just because Allen's GPS missed a report or maybe he made a quick stop to tend to his team.)
(If so, wouldn't you love to know what they said in passing?)
Another good source for coverage is the CB300 Facebook page. The CB300 crew has done a great job so far keeping it fresh, and other folks from far and wide have started adding their comments. This should provide some great "drama" during the race!
For those of you who are "statistically inclined" I can recommend the Google Drive Spreadsheet. It will provide you with all the stats that are available about the race.
For those of you who are not so spreadsheet friendly, I will try to provide some recaps and analysis during the race. It gets pretty crazy out there, but I'll do my best... Stay tuned!
