When the teams will leave Storåbränna 2, the equalization time has been added to their resting time, which means that the first team on the trail is also in the lead. According to calculations for the 12 dog team class, Jean Philippe Pontier will be allowed to leave the checkpoint after 10.58, while Bernhard Klammer will have to wait until 11.13, Daniel Juillaguet 11.29 and Walter Kunz 11.35 before they can start chasing the leader. Exciting!
In the 8 dog team class, two teams are way ahead of their competitors. Romain Grenier will be allowed to leave the checkpoint at 12.01 and Arnt-Magnus Gamst at 12.28.
