After briefly ceding the race lead heading into Manley Hot Springs, Martin Buser has jumped back to the front of the pack, leading the way along the trail to Tanana.

Buser trailed Nicolas Petit into Manley Hot Springs by just over an hour early this morning.

Hugh Neff, Aaron Burmeister, Jessie Royer and Aliy Zirkle round out the top-5.

Once racers hit Tanana, they will have a 119-mile run to Ruby — the longest leg of the race.
