PINEDALE, Wyo. (KIFI) - Anny Malo looks unstoppable after Stage 4 of the Pedigree Stage Stop Race Tuesday. She’s 4 for 4, but this is a sled dog race where anything can happen and usually does.

Mother Nature shined her light on the field of mushers Tuesday in more ways than one. They had a hard, fast trail until about Mile 13 when the skies clouded over, light flurries began to fall, and the back valley became a bit more snow covered than the rest of the course. The 34 miles out-and-back were fast, coated with a thin, hard snowpack maintained by Wyoming State Trails.

Anny Malo, returning three-time champion, broadened her lead by 18 minutes over two-time winner Lina Streeper. Cathy Rivest had a clean run with the Rivest-Malo B team and finished a strong second place. The mid-pack race is really where things are heating up. Seventeen-year veteran JR Anderson took back fourth place, as Dave Torgerson driving the Streeper B team dropped to fifth. Alix Crittenden advanced one place to sixth as four-time champ Hans Gatt dropped a spot to seventh. Jake Robinson had a great run which jumped him from eleventh place to eighth. Race fan favorite Austin Forney climbed one rung to ninth, and Rachel Courtney dropped to tenth.

Many other positions changed Tuesday.
