Yukon Quest Update #10

Allen Moore is first to Dawson City!
In an exciting run from Eagle, with varying run-rest strategies, Allen Moore is the first musher into Dawson, leading Lance Mackey by 19 minutes.
Hugh Neff come in about 50 minutes later, and Jake Berkowitz followed less than 2 hours after.
The front-runners will begin a mandatory 36-hour rest, while handlers are allowed to care for the dogs. Unique to the Quest, mushers can go into town to eat and get a hotel room for some much-needed sleep.

Most of the field is on the march to Dawson, with Trent Herbst, Misha Pedersen and Brian Wilmshurst still in Eagle and Marcelle Fressineau and Michael Telpin still on the way.
