No stranger to the Challenge, Jesse is back with us once again. Jesse (and wife Mary England) were planning a busy race season this winter and like so many other mushers, their plans have been thwarted by this strange winter weather we've all experienced. We are delighted that Jesse has made some last minute decisions and has registered with Challenge for the 10-dog race...hot on the heels after winning at the Caledonia Classic.
Jesse lives in Sioux Lookout, Ontario, and looking after their kennels is a true family affair. It's always a delight to welcome Jesse, Mary and their amazing family of supporters in Saskatchewan.
Jesse is racing the Challenge unassisted as an Iditarod qualifier. We are excited to see how he defends his Challenge title, and look forward to seeing him and the team very soon.
