Zack was first into the Central checkpoint today. This 1,000 milesled dog race has just begun.
"Three minutes later, Zack Steer was the antithesis of West — the picture of calm as he waited to pose for a photo with his lead dogs, walked to his sled after he was cleared to leave, kissed his wife goodbye and mushed off with a thumbs-up for the crowd and no hat on his head.
Steer was already feeling some positive vibes before he arrived downtown. On the way from Goldstream Valley that morning, he towed a stranded car out of a ditch near Ballaine Road."
