One of the first emails we recieved was from Emil from Norway, here's what makes him proud:
"I am a 18 year old boy from Norway that has a passion for long distance driving with dogs. (see picture) I am very proud of what I and my dogs can achieve.
That feeling I get when I'm driving over the mountain plateau and just can stand there listening in silence as the dogs do what they like is one of the best. And knowing that the dogs keep on running because they trust their lives to the musher.
There are many races I have been participating in - and won. I'm proud that all the training, planning and preparation did pay off.
Watch the video below and you can see when I, my dad and some others set a world record - the world's longest dog-team that are driven on an open field. (71,8 meters.)"
