It was all about the Yukon Quest 300 today.
Aliy and her 12 YQ300 team mates will head off wearing bib 6 on Saturday afternoon. They will leave the chute at 3.15pm.
Note: YQ bibs start at 51
This morning we took the athletes to their vet checks where they underwent the same examination as the 1000 mile dogs did this time last week.
Ginger is examined by Dr Greta M. Krafsur; Woody is ready for his exam with Dr Alan Taylor
I asked Dr Taylor what he looks for in the exam in this short video.
Many thanks to the vet team who are all volunteering their time for the race. We appreciate the care and attention you pay to our team.
