Lance Mackey is registered for the 2019 Iditarod. The 4 time Iditarod and Yukon Quest winner from Fairbanks has had a few rough years since his run of championships ended in 2010. A cancer survivor approaching 50, some might have assumed Mackey was done with long distance mushing, but as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the former champ is making another comeback.

Dan has been in public radio news in Alaska since 1993. He’s worked as a reporter, newscaster and talk show host at stations in McGrath, Valdez and Fairbanks. Dan’s experience includes coverage of a wide range of topics, from wolf control to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and dog mushing.
