A British musher will be the first out of the starting chute when the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race gets underway tomorrow in
Whitehorse. Rookie Mark Sleightholme drew the number one bib at the quest banquet last night. He’ll be followed out by 28 other mushers in the 1000-mile race to Fairbanks. Noticeably missing from the Quest field is reigning champion and four-time winner Lance Mackey.
