Morning report - Friday, Feb 8

The race is definitely on, with four mushers having passed through the Eagle checkpoint overnight. As I write, Allen Moore has a slim lead over Brent Sass for first and second place. Michelle Phillips is traveling in 3th place with Hans Gatt in fourth. Matt Hall arrived in Eagle about 10 minutes ago (05:45 AST) and is resting his team at his home-town checkpoint.

Jimmy Lebling finally made his way to Dawson City yesterday, and immediately scratched "for the well being of his team." Having completed her 36 hour layover, Olivia Webster (Hugh Neff's wife) turned around, returned to town and also scratched. Lisbet Norris finally made her way into town at about 10:40 last night.

As of this morning there are still 28 teams competing.
