I just got home from town, having been stuck behind a very bad traffic accident on the Chena Hot Springs Rd.
I checked the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race website to learn that Sebastian Schnuelle beat Hugh Neff (aka Huge Mess) to the finish line by only 4 minutes. Sebastian arrived at 10:44 and Neff at 10:48.
Obviously, Neff could have won the race quite handily had he not tried to cheat back by Central. Not only did that foolish move further damage his already poor reputation, it cost him the race. One can hope he is at least slightly humbled.
