Heavy Snow Wreaks Havoc In Knik 200

By | January 9, 2012 - 10:04 am

The heavy snowfall played havoc with sled dog mushers competing in the Knik 200 over the weekend.  Lance Mackey and Jake Berkowitz leapfrogged one another for the lead, with Mackey crossing the finish line first, but then finding out his time was adjusted back by six minutes.

After some confusion at the finish line, race officials re-calculated Mackey’s time and awarded Berkowitz first place. Mackey placed second, while Ray Redington Junior third, then  DeeDee Jonrowe, Trent Herbst, and Ken Anderson in 6th. Up next in sled dog racing action is the Kuskokwim 300 Sled Dog Race. That begins Jan. 20 in Bethel.

Following that will be the inaugural running of the Paul Johnson Memorial Norton Sound 450, that will run from Unalakleet to Kaltag, back to Unalakleet, and on up the coast to Nome.
