Eric Johnson left Iditarod last night

We did hear that Utah runner Eric Johnson left Iditarod last night. He was in good spirits. His tracker is not working. We will leave a message for him in Shageluk that he needs to check his tracking device.

Florian Reiterberger has left the Ophir check point. We are waiting to hear from him once he gets back onto the road system and cellphone signal about his arrival back at the hotel in Anchorage.

All other racers on the trail to Nome are making great progress.

Leading bikers Petr Ineman and John Logar are only 8 miles from Kaltag this morning.
