2015 Yukon Quest starts today!

It is finally here!
The first of the two "big" races in the great white north starts today in Whitehorse YT, the 2015 Yukon Quest.

We're wishing our friends Brent Sass of Wild & Free Mushing, and Mike Ellis of Team Tsuga Siberians and their teams a great race and good luck.

Our boys Buddy and Silver are ready to cheer on "their" teams!

2012 champ, and participant in our recent "Wild Eyed Tsuga" weekend, Hugh Neff is also at the start, along with many more former Quest and Iditarod champions.

Back-to-back champ, and 2012 runner-up, Allen Moore is first out of the chute today, followed by Brent. This should be an amazing race right from the start.

4-time Quest & 4-time Iditarod champion Lance Mackey is back running the Quest, as is '89 champion and 4-time Iditarod winner Jeff King.

Coming up a week from today, is the 30th annual Race to the Sky in Montana.
