Today Finnmarkslöpet started as well; while the leading pack in Iditarod is over halfway and it is starting to get really exciting.
I have to say I really like the race standing page Finnmarkslöpet has, the way it shows how standing changes from checkpoint to checkpoint.
And here is Iditarod's. At this point the Norwegian Rookie seems to be aiming for the top 10 - will he manage to beat Andersen's record rookie place of #4? At this point Buser's strategy seems to pay out and his lead might make the difference - if he can keep his pace. Aliy was a close second last year - I am rooting for her (of course).
