We just had our big race of the year here in Winnipeg, the Festival du
Voyageur Internation Sled Dog Classic. My son Sean raced NorthWapiti's Do
You Yahoo (Yahoo) and a friend's sibe in the 3.7 mile 2 dog kicksled event
and placed second in a time of 22 minutes. That included a tangle and a
wipeout all within the first 1/2 mile. It was a very fast, technical trail
with plenty of tight turns and ups and downs. Our trails are usually dead
flat and straight so this was a real test of driving. I raced the next day
with our other sibe, Chimini's Remington Steele, in the 3.7 mile skijor
event and came second in a time of 20 minutes.
