4 Mushers Blow Through Takotna; Champs Stay

So far 4 mushers have blown through Takotna, deciding to take their 24 farther up the trail.  Robert Nelson, Kelley Griffin, Cim Smyth, and Trent Herst have all decided to try and get ahead of the leaders by blowing through Takotna.  They may appear to be leading the race, but that will be short lived when Buser, Mackey, Schnuelle, Neff and all the other power-house musher blast out of Takotna after completing their 24.

Be looking for Martin and Lance to be leaving this evening, starting with Martin at 8:16 pm.  Unless, Lance decides to scratch the 24 and leave early, though this is unlikely with the fact that he’s still in Takotna.
