Jeff King Out of the Iditarod Scratches at Safety

According to race officers Jeff King scratched out of the race at safety. There was so much wind that he couldn't find the trail. he was with his team for one to two hours before trying to get help to get to safety checkpoint. Jeff and his team were moved to the safety checkpoint for the night. Aliy Zirkle passed Jeff King and arrived first.

My Reaction:
I really wanna know how he got off the trial, but i'm guessing it was winder than i think to not be able to see the trail. Jeff King won four times what really happened i think he felt bad and decided to drop out of the race and help Aliy.

  1. I'm glad he is okay , I honestly thought he had died along the trail. But the weather up there is crazy so i don't blame him for pulling over and just saying i'm done. If you can't see the trail then there is no point of racing.

  3. I'm glad that everything with him and his dogs are okay. He probably would have been first if he had not lost his way on the trail. I'm glad that he was not killed or not hurt. This shows that the Iditarod is a very hard thing to do.

  4. I feel sorry for Jeff king because he was simple at the wrong place at the wrong time. The good news is that Jeff and his dogs are aright and better luck next year.
