Every year, Alaska’s frozen tundra calls to dog mushers for the Iditarod – the iconic 1,000-mile race from Anchorage to Nome.
But if you head up to America’s last frontier a bit earlier, you’ll see people biking, skiing – and even walking – the same trail in a punishing ultra marathon course.
Earlier this month, professional cyclist and Victor, Idaho resident Jay Petervary won his third Iditarod Trail Invitational.
He recently spoke with James Dawson a few days after crossing the finish line.
