Biography

Matt Rossi, 49, was born in Wisconsin. He has been mushing 10 years and says, “what started as a hobby has rapidly progressed to where competing in the Iditarod is the focus. My team and I are looking forward to the challenges that are unique to the Iditarod. I have a great kennel of dogs and the support of family, friends and co-workers. It is also a matter of pride to complete “The Last Great Race” when, both my son, Andrew Letzring, and my son-in-law have run the race. The family moved to Herbster three years ago to live near the Chequamegon National Forest to raise and train their team. Last year, his daughter, Erin, married Ryan Redington and Matt said at that time he knew that “somehow running the Iditarod was in his future.” Matt has been the principle catering manager at the University of Minnesota Duluth for the last 15 years. He has six children and two grandchildren.
