The "smaller" version of Finnmarkslopet (500m) ended with two Germans in the TOP 10 of the result list: Bernd Helmich
(3) and Ben Voigt
(10), the only foreign mushers among Norwegians - great performance.

The "bigger" version of Finnnmarkslopet (1000km) is still going on, and two Germans are still in the race. Bernhard Schuchert
is placed eighth for the moment, which is a remarkable position for the IT-Manager of a worldwide agricultural engine company & and of course for his lead dog bitch Eowyn
(photo) and their dog team.
Another German is following the Finnmarkslopet - teams with a "Diesel" - version of a sled dog team: Hendrick Stachnau
is placed at the very end of the result list with his Malamute/Grönland Dog - team. Nevertheless it would be a big success for him and his dogs to finish Finnmarkslopet. We cross our fingers!
Hendrik's dream is to participate once at Yukon Quest with his "Diesel" - Dogs ...
Unfortunately Wolfram Schumacher
had to scratch.
