The trail between Shaktoolik and Koyuk crosses the sea ice of Norton Bay, and is considered to be a particularly treacherous leg of the trail. The weather forecast for that region remains quite reasonable, so I'm confident the four leading teams will enjoy fast trails under clear or nearly clear skies. I have no idea what the ice conditions are on the trail.
While I've been stuck in training and the I'rod mushers have been clocking the long miles, the ultra-fast spring dogs ran the Limited North American Championship race in Fairbanks. Here are the three highest placing teams in each class. The full results can be seen on the ADMA Website.
