Aliy powers along the highway toward Tolsona, then crosses the line to finish eleventh. There wasn't much of a crowd on hand -- in fact, only Doc Mike was there besides the checker! The freezing cold of -30 plus a biting wind were probably the reasons, but that didn't stop us from giving her and the dogs a rousing welcome and hearty congratulations. Here's an interesting tidbit for you: Aliy drew starting position #11 this year and finished in 11th place… Which is exactly the same position she finished in last year! Coincidence?
