We have three teams of 12 dogs entered in this year’s Copper Basin 300. That’s most of the adult yard!
Allen will run the Black Team comprised of Junior, Kodiak, Commando, Dutch, Mismo, Izzy, Daisy, Rodney, Tinder, Champ, Chipper and Felix.
You will notice the team is mostly what you would have expected with a few notable exceptions. Tinder, Rodney, Champ and Daisy have stepped up to the “Big Time” and we are excited to see them race on the Black Team. The latter three are actually Copper Basin 300 rookies but have been training so well this season they get the call up!
Aliy has a really solid Red Team and is looking forward to seeing how they perform. She has Lydia, Spark, Amber, Chemo, Nomex, Violet, Sissy, Scooter, Clyde, Driver, Iron and Sandy. Amber and Iron and CB300 rookies.
Chris is fielding an exciting Red & Black (R&B) Team. He has Scout, Scruggs, Olivia, Nelson, Woody, Chena, Hotshot, Outlaw, Ginger, Five, Cayenne and Ernie. A real mix of experience and youthful exuberance with everything from three former CB300 champs to six rookies. This is Chris’ first 300 mile race so we are excited for him to see these beautiful trails and experience this wonderful race.
Check out the Team Roster page for more information about each athlete.
There are always some left behind at the kennel come race time and we understand fans and sponsors of those dogs will be disappointed BUT they will be very well cared for by Ruth and Wendy who will keep everyone running so they are ready for the upcoming races! There’s plenty more to come.
