We are treated to a beautiful sunset here in Koyuk. Joar Leifseth Ulsom has just arrived. He is now the leading norwegian musher having passed Robert Sorlie while he rested in Shaktoolik. From talking to Roberts snowmachine friends a female in heat is still causing issues in the team. Joar is anoth...
Karen HarfordI don't think sports in the lower 48 even know what the Iditarod is -- it's all football and basketball.1 hour ago
Lois C GreeneMore and more of us know. I've been following since 1980! And have never been to actually see the race, and volunteer.1 hour ago

Carol Ann PetersenHey, I know there are some Minnesotans watching this year.2 · 1 hour ago
Regina GrubeHey Karen, there are people down here who know what the Iditarod is. I think people from the other two states dont understand that there is also tennis, softball, baseball, hockey, track, cross country, and the list goes on and on. I support the Iditarod and so fo several other people I know. So next time please get to know what sports we have besides football and basketball and dont prejudge us. Good luck to all those who are in the Iditarod and may you enjoy the sport you love. My prayers go out to you guys that each and every one of you stay safe as you make your way across the finish line.3 · 1 hour ago
Caren Zabel NelsonMy sons 4th grade class is doing a unit on the Iditarod and I am SO glad!! Of curse, I have always known what it was, but for the first time I am learning the details and the mushers and we are so excited to check to race standings every day :-) I am hooked!!2 · 1 hour ago
Kay KelleyIt is, after all, a dogs race. As for Minnesotans, take a look at where a good number of top mushers were born. Brent Sass for one, Scott Janssen, Dan Seavey and many more were born here in MN. Karen - we do know about the Iditarod and many other dog sled races.1 · 1 hour ago
Meri Stratton PhelpsMaybe fans should lobby NBCSN. They show some of the less mainstream sports events. It would be great to see some of the live coverage.1 · 1 hour ago
Jennifer Pearson MedlinIn Atlanta, we've heard of a finish at the Iditarod like that. But what we've heard is that one musher thought he won and stopped, and it turned out the musher "behind" him won. We've also heard there was a bit of a "debate" about it:)1 hour ago
Christopher KnottNot according to Rick. Dogs nose vs brush bow on the sled. That's why Rick kept pushing to get the sled across the line. Still point of contention for some.57 minutes ago
Over the noon hour in Unalakleet, there’s a five-some parked between the berms. Team Baker arrived, checked in with the vets and immediately departed along the slough heading to the Blueberry hills and onto Shaktoolik.
Koyuk is a busy place. The most current team to arrive was Aaron Burmeister. It had been a long run for him, with only resting less than 2 hrs in Shaktoolik. Conditions start to get worse out there, as the wind has been picking up. Now combine that with all the glare ice out there. It has been very…
Wow, what a run Dallas has done since Kaltag. He has really put on the heat. Just looking at these numbers is amazing. He left Kaltag at 12.56 p.m. in 13th place. Aliy Zirkle the current race leader left Kaltag at 3.18 a.m. He was almost 10 HOURS off pace at that point in the race. And now here in…
