Yukon Quest Starts

WHITEHORSE, Yk-One of the biggest sports events of the year started Saturday. The 30th running of the Yukon Quest. The race is shorter this year by 50 miles which is about 12 hours because part of the route over American Summit was ruled impassable by race officials because of winds and snow. The detour will be between Dawson and Eagle along the Yukon River.

After three days of racing here is the current leaderboard as of 7:30 pm tonight.

5. Lance Mackey

Scoot Smith is leading the rookies as he sits in 7th place.
