And They're Off!!!
The 2009 Iditarod is underway. A seemingly smooth start, at least for the teams. For the viewers, it was a little rough, with the Iditarod.com pages slow-to-impossible to access. Most users missed some if not all of the live video of the restarts.
The first mushers have passed through the Yentna Station Roadhouse Checkpoint.
At 40 miles into the race, the leaderboard reads:
1. Ed Iten
2. Aaron Peck
3. Warron Palfrey
4. Allen Moore
5. Rick Swenson
