#7 — Stephen Peterson from Backus, Minnesota.
Stephen Peterson began sled dog racing in 1998 at the age of 23. His first sled dog race was the Third Crossing Sled Dog Rendezvous in Frazze, Minnesota which Stephen says “was a wonderful learning experience.” Since then, he’s traveled all over the United States and Canada attending many races. The 2003 Prince Albert Winter Festival “was an awesome mass start race with 33 world class competitors. I was able to finish in 3rd place the first day right behind Buddy and Eddy Streeper.” In 2017, he competed in the Stage Stop placing eighth overall. Please welcome Stephen back to the 2019 Pedigree® Stage Stop Race.
