Team Kaiser - 2011 8th Place Finisher
This is one fast team. It seemed to come together in the last half of the race. After a bit of doggie flu out of Nikolai, the team recovered by Shageluk and turned on the power.
6hours 22minutes from White Mountain to Safety- Impressive
3 Miles out!!
Pete is traveling 9.2 mph! Where does Team Kaiser get the Energy after over 1000 miles. The must have put into double secret turbo boost! He is 10 miles out. That could mean a finish BEFORE 10:30pm!
Pete is 13 miles from Nome. Amazing performance!
I am not sure I can form the phrase that puts this race in perspective. But to end the race on a day such as this, as beautiful conditions that you could possibly imagine is something that is usually only read about, not experienced.
He’ll end his perfet race at the sunset of a perfect day– Wow!
