PINEDALE, Wyo. (KIFI) - Monday’s Stage 3 started at the Upper Green River Trailhead the same as Sunday's Stage 2, although conditions between Sunday and Monday could not have been more different.

Teams started off with light snow falling, and finished with more than breezy, 30 mph to be precise, winds. The 34-mile trail was beautifully groomed by Wyoming State Trails.

Although times were slower overall because of the weather, mushers were pleased with their results, and at least four reported much improved runs Monday.

Returning Stage Stop Champion Anny Malo now has a commanding 15-minute lead; however, Lina Streeper and Cathy Rivest are following in strong 2nd and 3rd places respectively.

The challenge for teams Monday morning came at Mile 5 when the route turned north and began a steady climb which pitched up at the crest. The closer that teams got to the mid-point turn around, the more they saw whiteout.

At Mile 15, race leader Anny Malo and runner-up Lina Streeper had kept their three-minute time difference.

Monday’s climb was much steeper than anything the racers saw Sunday. Most mushers only see 3-day races so after Tuesday, we should see a greater widening of the field. This is where the advantages of the pool of dogs come into play and it gets exciting from on.
