Unfortunately Nic had taken the wrong trail so that's. Robert Sorlie of Hurdal won the race in 2003 and 2005, and Leifseth Ulsom credits Sorlie for inspiring him as a youth.
A Norwegian flag waved in the background in the wee hours Wednesday, as Norway's Joar Leifseth Ulsom crossed under the burled arch that marks the finish of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
By midday on Tuesday, Ulsom and Petit and their dogs had paused in the Inupiat Eskimo village of White Mountain, a mandatory eight-hour rest stop before the final dash to the finish line in Nome, a coastal Gold Rush town 77 miles (124 km) to the west. He's also the second Norwegian after Robert Sorlie, a two-time victor who cheered Ulsom's progress along the trail.
Ulsom said the last 124 kilometres of this year's race was a "super fun, emotional ride".
Ulsom, who arrived 3-1/2 hours ahead of Petit, was expected to return to the trail in the afternoon and arrive at the finish line sometime after midnight, capping nine days of competition.
He picks up about $50,000, a drop from the 2017 winner's earnings of more than $71,000.
United Kingdom claims are 'insane' - Russian Federation They condemned Russian Federation and said it was a breach of global law that "threatens the security of us all". He will meet NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to discuss the situation, the alliance said in a statement.

Leifseth Ulsom ran his first Iditarod in 2013, decisively claiming rookie of the year honors by not only being the fastest rookie that year but also the fastest rookie to have ever run Iditarod with a seventh-place finish. Ulsom notched his second fourth-place finish previous year. New rules this year made mushers responsible for any positive drug test. Seavey, who won four titles between 2012 and 2016, denied giving drugs to his dogs and sat out this year's race in protest.
The organizing body of the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race has reprimanded Oregon State University toxicology professor Morrie Craig for improper comments to a competitor. Race spokesman Chas St. George didn't immediately respond to a request seeking clarification and more information.
The Iditarod said the context and intent of the conversation between Marrs and Craig differed but acknowledged that it was ill-timed. The race runs in Seavey's family as his dad ran the first Iditarod in 1973. Officials also said Craig should only communicate test results to board members and that any further actions deemed detrimental to the race would result in further disciplinary action, including possible termination.
Since then, five have quit the race including Ryan Redington, who scratched Sunday night in Kaltag. Eight of those, including Marrs, left the race.
