By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - There are currently 10 mushers still competing in the 2019 Yukon Quest.
Rookie Martin Reitan crossed the finish line late this afternoon to become the latest musher to finish the Quest.
Following Reitan is Dave Dalton as he approaches the Fairbanks finish line, while Rob Cooke, Deke Naaktgeboren, and Andrew Pace all arrived together at the final checkpoint before the finish, Two Rivers.
Our Current Red Lantern Holder is Laura Allaway, who was the final musher to check into Mile 101.
Earlier today the Quest announced that there would be more changes to the finish line here in Fairbanks.
It is being moved from the Morris Thompson Culture and Visitors Center to the Nordale Bridge downtown.
They made this change due to the dangerous conditions in the area, including overflow and wind-blown snow.
