Join hosts Robert Forto and Alex Stein as we welcome 4-time Iditarod champion, Lance Mackey to Mushing Radio.
On this episode Mackey shares his philosophy of training dogs to run some of the most grueling races on the planet, the Iditarod and the Yukon Quest. To him it is very simple: trust and faith and something he calls appetite and attitude.
We also discuss the state of mushing and what can be done to big this sport bigger and better than ever.
Mackey, the only musher to win the Yukon Quest and the Iditarod in the same year, is one of the sport’s most inspirational mushers. His story is so unique and his drive so fierce that it is no wonder he comes back each and every year and has a chance to win.
