Last night, the SP Kennel crew and other sled dog fanatics made their way to Iditarod Start Banquet. And for any Iditarod musher, the night was filled with mingling, talking, and poster signing with the exception of the bib draw.
Aliy was one of the first mushers up to the podium, drawing number 18! This is a great starting position, so we couldn't be happier. Shortly after, it was Allen's turn. As many of you may remember, Allen has had terrible luck at the bib draw. In both the Copper Basin and Yukon Quest, Allen drew the second-to-last bib, but last night, he was feeling lucky. And sure enough, Allen whipped out number five!
Get ready for the start-
