Fast trail, fast teams in first full day of Iditarod racing

It’s a very fast trail this year, and last year’s winner, Lance Mackey, was among the first into Skwentna after the restart in Willow. He and others took some rest there, as Jeff King and others came through, stopping briefly, and headed on. After winning the Yukon Quest yet again this year, will the fast trail work in Mackey’s favor?
