(Kemmerer, Wyo.) – Todays’ Stage 7 of the International PEDIGREE State Stop Sled Dog Race, also known as the Kemmerer Leg, has been cancelled due to weather conditions affecting the trail.

Overnight snowfall continuing through the morning had accumulated on the trail exceeding depths of three feet, the race reported in a news release. Blowing wind was expected to increase causing drifting snow to infill the trail immediately behind grooming equipment. Combined with whiteout conditions, it was determined by the race officials that an environment of safe competition could not be provided.

The final stage of the race is scheduled to take place, as scheduled, beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday outside Mountain View/Lyman and finishing outside Evanston.

Yesterday, John Stewart turns in the fastest time of leg 6 with a time of 3:02:53 followed by Dave Turner 3:05:40, Aaron Peck 3:06:42, Blayne “Buddy” Streeper 3:08:11, Ryan Redington 3:09:20, Dennis Laboda 3:12:53, Frank Moe 3:14:14, Bruce Magnusson 3:15:36, Stacey Teasley 3:17:50, and Alix Crittenden 3:22:52 — are yesterday’s top 10.
