Allen Moore wins Yukon Quest

Feb 11, 2013 -- 9:50am

 

- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Allen Moore of Two Rivers has won the Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race. The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that the 55-year-old musher crossed the finish line in downtown Fairbanks at 6:54 a.m. Monday. This year's race looked like it was going to again come down to a battle between Moore and defending champion Hugh Neff, who won last year's Yukon Quest by just 26 seconds in 2012. But after leaving the checkpoint in Two Rivers, Moore managed to widen the gap. A small group of race officials and spectators greeted Moore in the predawn darkness at the finish line on the Chena River in downtown Fairbanks. Among them was Moore's wife, veteran Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race musher Aliy Zirkle, who won the Quest in 2000.
