Slight correction to the last post. The winning group included Tyler Johnson and Todd Kasteler as I mentioned before but also Luc Mehl and Jon Sykes. The group of four finished in 2 days 15 hours and took a route that included a lot of glacier travel and a 6700 foot pass. The four roped together for safety on the Yanert glacier and broke-through snow bridges on more than thirty crevasses. Hypothermia, flipped rafts and lots of close calls added up to a great race. Hopefully I'll get more information for you soon. Also,there should be an article coming out in the Fairbanks Daily News Miner in the next day or two.
