This will be Bruce’s 15th consecutive stage stop — more consecutive races than any other competitor in the 25-year history of our event — and his 17th year of mushing. Although Bruce grew up playing sports, he says that for him no other sport compares to the thrill of sled dog racing. On his race application, he states “this is my favorite race because of the format, the competitive field, and the camaraderie of the whole Stage Stop family. It gives me a perfect excuse to spend 8 days on the trail with my best friends.”
