In a surprise to no one, Lance Mackey, who has won the race four times (2007-10), is the leader nearing the midpoint of the 1,000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.

Mackey was the first musher to pull into the checkpoint in Ophir, Alaska. Mackey arrived around 5:30 a.m. PST Wednesday and rested for 15 minutes before heading back out on the trail.

Jake Berkowitz arrived in Ophir second and Nicolas Petit third.

Sixty-five mushers started the race Sunday and only two have dropped out so far.
