Hello Race Fans,
At this point in the Iditarod, if you aren't totally confused – you're probably delusional! Even seasoned race observers have a tough time keeping the many checkpoints, rest breaks and position changes straight in their head. Fortunately, we have an Iditarod veteran musher to walk us through the fog of data and updated stats. Jon Little has filed a new article that refers to the old Abbot and Costello gag, "Who's on first?" that should bring this year's exciting race into clearer focus. Once the mandatory 24-hour layover has been completed, we should have a leader more clearly defined. However, as all race fans know, everything in the Iditarod is subject to change.
Who's on first? By Jon LittleQuestion: Who's leading the 2007 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race? Answer: Four teams. Pick one. Pick a leader, and you might be right or wrong depending on what happens in the next 24 hours. Watch trail conditions, run times and rest times, and a leader will emerge once the front four have cut loose onto the Yukon River.

King begins to gather speedBy Jon LittleThe reigning Iditarod champion was half mystified, half satisfied, very relieved and all business as he tended his dogs and made minor repairs to his sled on the sunny banks of the Kuskokwim River.
