Defending champ Lance Mackey is still leading the Iditarod at this hour. He’s the first, and only, musher to leave Ruby thus far, checking out just after 3:30 this afternoon. Six other mushers have checked in to Ruby. They include frontrunners Jeff King, Kjetel Backen, Mitch Seavey and Rick Swenson.
