A Quebec musher won his eighth victory in Maine’s biggest sled dog race, the 250-mile Irving Woodlands Can-Am Crown.
Martin Massicotte finished late Sunday, completing the race in 20 hours, 7 minutes and 38 seconds. He was followed by two other Quebec mushers, Andre Longchamps and Denis Tremblay.
Race spokesman Beurmond Banville says those three finished within 47 minutes of each other.
“The winner, Massicotte, beat out Longchamps by 17 minutes, and then Denis Tremblay came in 3rd, and the three of them were within 47 minutes of each other after 221 miles,” he says.
