Laura Neese and Ed Stielstra Scratch

Tuesday, February 7, 2017

This afternoon at 3:50pm, veteran musher Laura Neese (bib #11) scratched from the race in Pelly Crossing with 13 dogs. She did not feel she would be able to continue and keep her team in the top physical condition she would like to see them in.

Rookie musher Ed Stielstra (bib #12) also scratched in Pelly Crossing at 3:51pm with 14 dogs. His decision was in support of Laura Neese’s future racing plans and goals.
