One thing to note about the current standings, though... expect them to jockey around a lot in the next day or two as mushers declare and take their layovers at different times and in different checkpoints. Lance Mackey, for example, is listed as being in 44th place right now. But that's because he stopped in McGrath nearly 24 hours ago, making it a near certainty that is where he is taking his layover. When his layover as well as the additional time adjustment to equalize the 2-minute interval start are done, watch him tear through Takotna. He'll likely make a very short stop there and move down the trail, thereby passing all the folks still wrapping up their 24s in that checkpoint.
As I mentioned at the end of my last post, I fully expect the twins to declare and take their 24 hour mandatory layover in Takotna. Not only did they have reserve sleds shipped here in case they were needed, Takotna is also known for having great musher facilities including a good cook, access to already-hot water for the dogs, and I've heard this is the stop with 24 hour pie. Yep, fresh baked pie. Can you imagine what that tastes like after 300 miles of trail? Mmm Mmm good!
