As more Iditarod mushers arrive in Nome, Jessie Holmes takes third and Dan Kaduce fourth.

By early Wednesday morning, the top 10 quickest finishers in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race had all crossed beneath the burled arch in Nome, and the top 20 would be filled up by the end of the day.

Brent Sass of Eureka was the first to cross in the pre-dawn hours, winning the Iditarod for the first time at 5:38 a.m. The race’s incumbent champion, Dallas Seavey of Talkeetna, will start at 6:46 a.m. on Tuesday.

At 7:39 p.m. in Nome, Jessie Holmes of Brushkana soared into the chute with his team of nine dogs, his mustache frozen in ice.

When the “Life Below Zero” reality TV star came to screams and chants, he turned to wave, exciting the throng even more. Sass, the race champion, rushed into the racing chute to congratulate the third-place musher, who had completed earlier that morning.

At the conclusion, Holmes commented, “It felt so amazing to be third.”

He said that his canines are young, claiming that eight of the nine he ended with had never traveled to Nome with him.

“I simply handled them properly, and they did an amazing job,” Holmes said of his group.

According to him, he had to let go of a handful of lead dogs along the route owing to minor orthopedic issues, which meant the team had to train new leads along the difficult terrain.

Strong winds along the shore of Norton Sound created a musher pileup in Shaktoolik, with competitors spending hours attempting to wait out the storm before heading to Koyuk and crossing the sea ice.

Musher Chatanika Dan Kaduce had been hot on Holmes’ heels coming into Nome, trailing him by 16 minutes out of White Mountain.

In Nome, Holmes commented, “I wish I had gone out in that storm in Shaktoolik so I wouldn’t have had to worry about (Kaduce) the whole time.” “However, hanging out with him was enjoyable.”

Given warnings of gusts gusting to 45 mph, Holmes said he chose to spend the night in Shaktoolik.
