Yukon Quest update on Day 6

Ten mushers have crossed over into Dawson.

Yukon Quest mushers have their eye on Dawson, after all were confirmed to have left Eagle today, and ten mushers have now made it into Dawson, and a much-deserved 36 hour layover.

Brent Sass was the first to arrive yesterday afternoon, and if he finishes the race, will get four ounces of Klondike Placer gold from the Fellers family in Dawson. He's elgible to leave just after midnight tonight. Two-time champion Allen Moore arrived second, and Hugh Neff sits in third,

Matt Hall is fourth and Ed Hopkins from Tagish round out the top five. Sweden's Torsten Kohnert arrived just before 6 am, and Tom Frode Johansen pulled into Dawson a few minutes before 7 am.

Yuka Honda, Mike Ellis and Seth Barnes clocked in this afternoon, as they begin the 36 hour layover, many of them satting, they're excited to have a beer.

Andrew Pace appears to be stopped on the trail, as he sits 18 miles out.

Dave Dalton gained an advantage and is closing in on Dawson as well, sitting 5 miles out.  

Page Drobny and Cody Strathe both rested at the hospitality stop, before continuing on, sitting 34 miles out from Dawson. Both are currently stopped on the trail.  

Mendenhall's Luc Tweddel arrived at Clinton Creek, around 11 AM right on the Canada-U-S border, with Whitehorse's Rob Cooke and rookie Laura Neese from Michigan, also camped out there.

Tore Albrightsen is now in Canada, as he makes his way into Clinton Creek with Gaeten Pirrard,  and Sebastien Dos Santos Borges.

Tony Angelo has reached the bottom of the summit with 40 miles to Clinton, traveling at 4 miles per hour.  

Ontario's Hank DeBruin is in the Red Lantern position was the last to leave Eagle, after spending close to 8 hours there. He sits at the top of the American Summit.

Still only one musher has scrached from the race, that was J Jay Levy on Sunday afternoon. A number of teams are reporting a stomach bug is going through their dogs, but they're taking extra care, shaking it off, and pushing forward in the race.
