Aaron Peck in 1st place in Stage Stop Dog Race
Aaron Peck of Alberta, Canada has moved into first place in International Pedigree Stage Stop Sled Dog Race.
Peck replaced Buddy Streeper of Fort Nelson, British Columbia as the top musher after the third stage of the race Monday in Alpine, Wyo. On Tuesday the dog teams will race around Pinedale, where wind chill values could drop to as low as minus 10.
KOVE-AM reports that the racers will then attend a banquet in Lander and watch a movie of last year's stage there.
Streeper is now in second place and Lars Lindh of Sweden is in third. Lander favorite Jerry Bath has advanced to ninth place.
The race also includes stages in Idaho, Utah, and Montana.
