    Alan Sheldon flying in the Yukon Arctic Ultra

    Alan Sheldon (UK), previous ITI racer, is the lone biker in this year's Yukon Arctic Ultra and he is ripping it up. He has covered almost 300 miles in the first three days, and has actually gotten ahead of the race support and is relying on the Yukon Quest checkpoints. If you check out the race site he's got a spot tracker.

    Sounds like trails are really good this year, despite a big dump of snow the week before. I'm planning to ride some sections this weekend.

    OK, getting to Pelly is not 300 miles... But, still definitely well over 200 miles in three days and going strong. I'm itching to hit that trail.

    Well, things slowed down quite a bit with fresh snow and difficulties finding the trail, but it looks like Alan will be in Dawson within the next day or so.

    Thanks for the support Bill Kathy & Pat.
    Hope to see you in AK again. Had a few knee problems towards the end of the race and had to slow a little. The trail was very good for most of the distance .The Black Hills and King Solomonís Dome have some fantastic views.

    Alan.
