During his career as a musher, Fjestad has had many exceptional dog teams and has achieved admirable results in Norway's major sled dog races. But it all started in Alaska, in 1977, when he was the first European to participate in the worlds largest sled dog race, the Iditarod.
Now, over four decades later, his goal is to raise a team of dogs for one more Iditarod adventure through the Alaskan wilderness. Both musher and dogs needs to be adequately prepared in order to accomplish this mission. After a few years of groundwork, we now have a kennel of young dogs whose potential matches our ambition.
The next few years we will continue to develop our young dogs into experienced adolescents. In 2019, these dogs should grow into their full potential, and be able to compete with the best dogs in Europe. This is when we can expect to have competitive results at the different long distance races we participate in. At this stage, and with all previous success in mind, we believe we will have shown worthiness to acquire the financial support necessary to race the Iditarod in Alaska.
