Miss Martin Buser’s arrival into Nome on Wednesday? Hear our interview with him under the Burled Arch, and check out our photos, below.
Buser talked with KNOM’s Matt Smith about how he – and not his dogs – made some mistakes in his 2011 Iditarod run. (After leading the pack early in this year’s race, Buser slipped from the front-runners and ultimately finished in 18th place.)
The four-time champion also discussed his 2002 record time being broken by John Baker, the possibility of even faster Iditarod runs in the future, and his status as a spokesperson for Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign.
Buser also quipped that, after three decades of running the Iditarod, this is only the “beginning of (his) career.”
