Yukon Musher Eyeing Top-Five Finish in 2014 Quest

After recording his best finish in three years in the 2013 Yukon Quest, Whitehorse musher Normand Casavant is setting his sights higher this time around.“I would like to be in the top-five,” the 51-year-old told the Star at the race’s 31st birthday party at the Jarvis Street Saloon Friday night. “We always want to do better … but you never know. It’s a 1,600-km race, so you never know what is going to happen. But yes, I would like to finish in the top-five.”Last year, Casavant finished the 30th edition of the Yukon Quest in 10 days, two hours and 56 minutes, and was the first Yukon musher to reach Fairbanks. He took home $5,950 for his efforts.This year, the race route will reverse, starting in Fairbanks Feb. 1 and finishing in the Yukon capital.Read more here: http://www.whitehorsestar.com/archive/story/yukon-musher-eyeing-top-five...
