The full contingent of Kaiser Race fans met Pete as he crossed the burled arches this morning at 11:24am this morning to claim 5th place in the 2016 Iditarod. Pete and the dogs looked great. After chasing 4th place Musher Wade Mars, he just missed 4th place by a bit over 2 minutes.
Pete was very satisfied in both the Team and the Race as a whole. This 5th place finish ties his earlier 2012 5th place finish, but his time of 8d 20h 24m 55s is his fastest time ever. He officially bests Lance Mackey’s 2010race record with this finish.
Here are the photos! Go Team Kaiser!
