A few minutes after Iditarod dog race winner Dallas Seavey crossed the finish line, a videographer had to tell him that he’d actually won the race. He had no idea.
“Dallas, did you think you could do this?” an Iditarod Insider videographer asked.
“What exactly did I do?”
“You just won the Iditarod, 2014.”
“Are you kidding me? I thought that was my dad behind me. Where’s Jeff and Aliy?”
Jeff and Aliy are Jeff King and Aliy Zirkle, two competitors that Seavey thought were ahead of him. They had been, too, until a windstorm knocked King off course and caused Zirkle to pull the dogs over in safety for a few hours. Seavey ended up finishing three minutes ahead of Zirkle, the closest race since 1978.
