Musher Turned Blogger, Schnuelle Talks About Iditarod 2012
Friday, March 16, 2012
Now retired from competitive mushing, he has unique insight into how mushers approach the Last Great Race. He says he saw Dallas Seavey setting himself up for victory as early as the Yukon. Sebastian talks about the top three mushers in Iditarod 40: Dallas Seavey, Aliy Zirkle, and Ramey Smyth.
You can hear even more of our interview with Sebastian on our On the Trail blog; in the extended interview, Schnuelle talks about how he came to be an "armchair musher" for the Iditarod and Yukon Quest, the bond between a musher and his dogs, and other Iditarod mushers, such as Pete Kaiser, John Baker, Aaron Burmeister, and Mike Williams, Jr.
