Evening update from McGrath

Jay Petervary rolled into McGrath this evening at 7 PM. Jay and Neil are talking about the trail and conditions out there. 

The first place woman is German via Norway Nina Gaessler, and is currently resting in Nikolai. She is in 9th place overall. 

The leading runner is Scott Hoberg.  He left Rohn earlier this evening.  Defending champ David Johnston and Gavin Woody are still resting in Rohn.

Skier Chet Fehrmann is out of Rohn as well, just ahead of Scott.

We had another racer scratch today.  John Logan crashed coming off Rainy Pass last night and hit his head on a rock.  He told me that his hat, balaclava and goggles saved his head.  He was able to get on a flight out of Rohn today and is currently in Anchorage with a concussion.  We wish him the best and hope to see him next year.
