"An Iditarod Sampler: Photos From Alaska's Iditarod"

"Alaska's Iditarod fascinates people around the world. June Price, author of "Backstage Iditarod" and "Becoming Alaskan", has taken her camera behind the scenes to capture not just the race itself, but events leading up to and after the race. You'll see informal shots of not just Anchorage's Ceremonial Start and scenes from Nome, where the race ends, but shots taken at qualifiers, the vet check, musher sign-up and more. It's a fascinating look behind an event that, despite its popularity, takes place in a faraway place most fans will never visit. This is your chance to get as close to the Iditarod as possible without actually having to travel to Alaska."

For those who asked: 2010 Iditarod shirt logo

I'm assuming this one must be new, too, cos otherwise they wouldn't have Lance as a 3-time champion.

This version is small and situated where your shirt pocket would be.
