ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- It was once thought to be impossible. Now Sebastian Schnuelle will try to disprove it's impossible for anyone not named Lance Mackey.
Schnuelle, who won the grueling Yukon Quest on Feb. 24, will try to pull off his own version of the Mackey Miracle beginning Saturday as the 2009 Iditarod kicks off.
Before Mackey did it in 2007, no musher had ever won the Quest and Iditarod in the same year. To show it was no fluke, Mackey did it again in 2008.
