This morning at 11:02 am PST, the Yukon Quest received notification that Bib #12, Tony Angelo requested assistance by activating the emergency assistance button on his race tracking device.
The organization coordinated with the Canadian Rangers and a team was immediately sent out to Angelo’s location to assess the situation.
Upon reaching Angelo, about 32 miles from Dawson City, they discovered that while both he and his team were healthy, they were unable to continue in the race. He will be escorted into Dawson City.
This action will result in Angelo being withdrawn from the Yukon Quest.
