The distance between Dawson City and Pelly Crossing, the next checkpoint, is the longest distance between checkpoints of any dog sled race in the world – 201 miles (323km).

Dave is now listed (depending on the source) anywhere between seventh and ninth. Excitement, thy name is Yukon Quest. Go Dave, GO!
