The slate of early entries for next winter’s running of the Yukon Quest is already making for a competitive race. 22 teams signed up this past Saturday to run the 1,000-mile international sled dog race. Quest Canadian Director Stephen Reynolds says 13 veterans and 9 rookies took advantage of the early sign-up opportunity. Reynolds says the field includes the Quest’s 4-time defending champion and a 4-time Iditarod winner.
