ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Top 30 Mushers in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race have made it into Nome. Fifteen of them came in on Wednesday.
The first musher in Wednesday could very well have been the second musher – Ken Anderson and Jessie Royer had a sprint to the finish for ninth place. Anderson ended up on the winning end of that sprint.
Also finishing Wednesday were Aliy Zirkle, DeeDee Jonrowe just two minutes behind, Michael Williams, Jr., Sven Haltmann and Sonny Lindner to round out the Top 15.
Defending champion Lance Mackey came in at 16th place, followed by Michelle Phillips, Martin Buser, Robert Nelson and Rick Swenson to finish out the Top 20.
