As of Tuesday morning, the Beargrease mushers were on their way to Devil Track Resort, the sixth checkpoint in the race.
Laura Kennedy, with Eyewitness Sports, called in from Devil Track about 6:45 Tuesday morning. She told us that while they had originally expected mushers to begin arriving at Devil Track around 6:00 AM, they would now not expect them to begin arriving until 8:30 AM.
Laura said that mushers can now sleep when they want, and they are beginning to spread out more.
At 5:00 AM on Tuesday morning, it was -29 degrees outside near Grand Marais, so it is crucial for mushers to keep a close eye on their dogs condition.
