#9 — Elliot Rivest from St-Zénon, Québec, Canada.
Elliot is a student living in a family of a mushers, literally. He began mushing when he was four years old. He’s raced in many junior races on his family’s numerous trips around Canada and North America. “I did my first adult race last year at the 2018 Eagle Lake Sled Dog Races in Maine” writes Rivest, who was joined by his father, brother and mother, all of whom also raced in the 30-mile event. “I take care of the dogs, handle and train them with my family. The last time I was at the Stage Stop Race, I was 8 years old. I thought Wyoming was the most beautiful place in the world. I’m very happy to be able to return this year.”
