Two Rivers Dog Mushers
Why did you enter the Yukon Quest? What are your goals for the race?
2020 specifically for the Fairbanks start. Living with the Quest trail right in my backyard in Two Rivers. Passing by home on Day 1 makes a lot more sense than at the end. To get my team to Whitehorse as quick as we can while still keeping it a fun and positive experience for me and the dogs.
How did your dogs get their names?/ How do you choose names?
Themes mostly. Jazz. Hip Hop. Monsters. Warriors.
What music do you listen to on the trail?
