This is pretty long so make a coffee, put your feet up and enjoy the view from the tag sled of the Red Team during the Ceremonial Start back on Saturday.
Watch out for our moose encounter at 11:50. It is hard to tell how close it was because I was a ways behind filming, but by the time we rounded the corner it was too late to stop the team, Ms Moose was right alongside and turned towards Izzy when Aliy roared at her to move along. It was pretty scary!
BTW we use the tag sled to add weight to the line. For the ceremonial start we want the teams to be going slower as they are through the streets amongst thousands of people. An extra sled and person adds more control.
