Sled dog racing without snow? Yes, called dryland racing and is catching on all over the United States after years of popularity in Europe.
Mushers will compete for a $10,000.00 purse in Canicross, Bikejor, rig and scooter classes at the East Meets West Dryland Championship on October 30th and 31st, 2010, at Warner Lake Park in Clearwater, Minnesota.
