What a dramatic race the 2011 Yukon Quest was, with an uncertain outcome until the very last miles of this 1,000 mile mushing marathon. In the end, rookie Dallas Seavey of Willow was the first to mush his team under the finish line in Fairbanks, just a few minutes ahead of Sebastian Schnuelle of Whitehorse/Paxson. Congratulations to all the mushers who entered this year’s race. It’s definitely one for the history books! I took this shot of Seavey’s leaders setting the pace at the start in Whitehorse. Below, Sebastian Schnuelle’s team sprints down the starting chute. Sebastian came in second place, only 33 minutes behind Seavey!
