Dallas Seavey is the winner of the 2015 Iditarod. This is his third win in four years. The 27-year old musher says he’s not the only young member of his team. Many of his dogs are only three years old.

Some sled dogs can race beyond the age of eight. Seavey says his team has a long future of competitive mushing ahead.

“You’re going to see these guys coming back again and again and again,” Seavey said. “That’s our focus is consistently being in the top.”

The repeat champion says he has enjoyed his previous wins, but he says this year’s championship is particularly meaningful.

Other top finishers included:  Mitch Seavey,  Aaron Burmeister, and Jessie Royer.
