Iditarod Update (Day 4)

Peter Basinger finished the short course (350 Miles) establishing a course record on his bike, with the rest of the field leaving the last CP (Nikolai Mile 300) early this morning.  The first runner checked out of CP4 (Puntilla 165 Miles) a day and a half ago.  Diane Van Deren is still at CP4, having arrived there last night, but has not left yet.  Kami Semik dropped at Skwentna CP2 (Mile 90).  Ghirardi and Berni, both from Italy look like they’re traveling together with Diane, and are in the lead for the long course (1100 miles), checking in at CP4 at the same time.
