Sprint musher Buddy Streeper comes from behind to claim 7th Open North American crown
Buddy Streeper of British Columbia came from behind Sunday in Fairbanks to narrowly capture his seventh title in the Open North American Championships, one of sled dog racing’s oldest and most prestigious races.
Streeper made up a gap of more than 40 second to beat Quebec’s Anny Malo by 1.7 seconds after three days and about 70 miles of racing. His final-day run provided a dramatic conclusion to the 75th edition of the sprint race known as “the granddaddy of them all.”
The only mushers with more Open North American titles are Egil Ellis (12) and George Attla (8). Coming into this year’s race, Streeper was tied with Roland “Doc” Lombard with six championships.
