Iditarod Update #1

| 1 Comment

Posted March 9:

Our class is on Spring Break this upcoming week. Before the break we were eagerly following the Iditarod and checking the race standings several times a day. We will find out the winner while we are on our break, and I will post the results here. As I write this our class musher, Jeff King, is in second place! Three of our other nominees (Aliy Zirkle, Martin Buser and Robert Sorlie) are in the top 10. It looks like it will be a very close and exciting finish this year!

While we are waiting to find out who wins, check out this amazing video shot by Jeff King a few days ago. We learned that Mr. King is known as an innovator in the mushing community, and his most recent idea is using a GoPro camera to film his races.  In this video you can really see what it’s like to race behind a powerful team of sled dogs!

What is your favorite part of this video?

If you had a GoPro camera, what would you film with it?
