After a layover near the coast yesterday, most teams have already arrived at their next layover stops along the Yukon River. As of 4:50 A.M. local time, Team 10 is on layover in Ruby with Teams 18 and 15 coming in about an hour or two behind them. Follow their progress with GPS and Current Standings.
Team 9 is in Nulato this morning (6:30 A.M.) at the local clinic after a wreck about 15 miles down river. No life threatening injuries have been reported, we’ve spoken with Don West and Derrick is banged up to the point that they will not be continuing.
Next stop for the leaders will be Tanana, where all teams will be held until Saturday morning for a 7:00 A.M. restart for a daylight finish into Fairbanks.
