We not only competed in but was also the lead sponsor of the Alaska Dog Works Dryland Derby that was held the first week of October. We had three mushers enter in the events.
The dryland season for us started in earnest with us racing each weekend during the month of September at both Chugiak and a new event down at Kincaid Park in Anchorage.
Dryland mushing is really picking up steam here in the area as more clubs are finding ways to add new events and to get mushers more involved.
The first few weeks were preliminary races. We tried a bunch of different team combinations and new equipment. Several of our dogs raced for the first time and Robert tried out his new carbon bike.
