2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race begins

Defending champion Lance Mackey drives his dog team from the starting line of the ceremonial start of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race in Anchorage. The 2011 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kicked off this weekend, with 62 mushers and their dog teams on the road to Nome, Alaska, vying for the championship.

With both Saturday's ceremonial start in downtown Anchorage and the official restart from Willow behind them, the teams will cover a total of 1,131 miles using the Southern Route, as is done in odd-numbered years.

Called the "last great race on Earth," each team of 12 to 16 dogs and their musher cover the distance in approximately nine to 13 days, with 25 checkpoints, including Anchorage and Nome, along the way.

Current Iditarod champion Lance Mackey is back, hoping to add a fifth victory to his record four consecutive wins. Also in the mix is Rick Swenson, the only competitor to have won the race five times (though over 30 years). Another returning champion is Martin Buser, a four-time winner as well. Buser is currently the musher with the most consecutive Iditarod finishes -- 25 races -- and holds the record for the fastest Iditarod, completing the 2002 race in 8 days, 22 hours, 46 minutes and 2 seconds.

Here's wishing all competitors -- both human and canine -- luck on their journey over the days and weeks ahead. Hopefully all will arrive safely in Nome.

Snowboarder Louie Vito lands Toyota sponsorship for Winter Dew Tour

Vito

Toyota has announced its official sponsorship of snowboarder Louie Vito for the 2011 Winter Dew Tour. Vito joins U.S. Women’s Olympic team snowboarder Elena Hight and top freeskier Simon Dumont on Toyota’s roster of sponsored Winter Dew athletes this season.

Vito, 22, won in the first event of this season's Winter Dew Tour, the Nike 6.0 Open, at Breckenridge, Colo., in December. While Vito also represented the U.S. in the halfpipe competition at the 2010 Winter Olympics, where he finished fifth, he may be most recognized by some for participating on Season 9 of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" in 2009.

Hight, Dumont, and Vito will be signing autographs in the Toyota tent in Festival Village at the remaining two stops of the tour --  Killington, Vt., taking place Thursday through Sunday, and the Toyota Championships,  Feb. 10-13 in Ogden, Utah.

In its fourth season as a founding partner of the Winter Dew Tour, Toyota also announced it will be offering athletes and fans free rides from shuttle stops in and around the Winter Dew Tour host resorts to any desired location, within a set distance, helping to keep fans from trekking in the snow.
