Buser gets golden meal Veteran musher first to reach Yukon River

first_imgAfter finishing a dessert of bittersweet chocolate crepes and a cheese plate with pear poached in port, Buser received his “after dinner mint” – the pile of $1 bills. Buser, a four-time Iditarod champion, was also first to reach the tent checkpoint of Eagle Island on the frozen Yukon River on Saturday, arriving at 6:30 a.m., followed 80 minutes later by 2006 champion and four-time winner Jeff King. In Anvik, Buser shared his meal with Iditarod veteran Ken Chase, whose best finish was fourth in 1978. The two mushers became friends in 1980 during a cold Iditarod run on the Yukon River. Buser was trying to camp out on the river. Chase steered him toward a more comfortable spot. “Thank you for the delicious food,” Buser said, taking another sip of champagne before he headed upstairs to get a few hours sleep before getting back on the 1,100-mile trail and toward the finish in Nome about 500 miles away. Middle-of-the-packers were arriving Saturday morning in Anvik, with most teams checking in and out quickly, choosing not to rest their teams in this checkpoint. ANVIK, Alaska – Martin Buser took several sips of Dom Perignon champagne and looked down at the large gold pan piled high with money before him. “Pretty awesome,” he said, as people crowded around in the community hall Friday in Anvik, where a gourmet chef from Anchorage, wearing a lynx hat, prepared a seven-course meal. Buser said he’s taken some pretty hard hits on the trail this year – one that he thought was going to end his 24th Iditarod. He was on his way to the halfway point at Iditarod when he banged his knee on a tussock. “I thought I had totally broken it. It made such a loud pop,” he said. “It just knocked me off the sled and passed me out.” When Buser came to, he pulled himself back on his sled and continued on. “Obviously, I am wimpy. I couldn’t handle the pain and passed out,” he said. At another point along the trail, Buser said he hit a stump and his gangline holding his dog team severed. Thirteen of them trotted off down the trail. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
