here's the roster for the 2009 Iditarod Sled Dog Race
I've got 3 must cheer for people this year - Mitch Seavey, and then his son and daughter-in-law Dallas and Jen Seavey. Dallas is the youngest musher to ever finish (he turned 18 the day before the start of the race in 2005) and this is Jen's rookie year. Dallas will be semi-competitive (first time for him) and Jen is running Mitch's puppy team. Mitch, the 2004 Iditarod Champion, will -of course- but running the A team
Buser, King, and Mackey are also on the roster - not that we'd expect anything different.
It's gonna be a GREAT race... I'm considering attending the real start as well as the ceremonial start Can't wait!
