Biography

Isabelle Travadon, 53, was born and raised near Paris, France. For the last 30 years, she has been a dog and cat breeder. She moved to the south of France seven years ago because of the dry beautiful weather for breeding! She began mushing in 1990. “I have been a musher and Siberian huskies breeder since more than 20 years. I was many times French Champion in sprint and mid distance. I was three time European champion in mid distance and I raced the two last editions of the Alpirod. I have run the Grande Odyssée since 2005. When my children became adults, I decided to run long distance races in Norway. I ran the Femundløpet 400 and 600 and the Finnmarksløpet 500 and 1000, where I became the best non-Norwegian female musher with my Siberian huskies since the race began 30 years ago. My dream was always to run the team in the Iditarod, the most famous and greatest race in the world!” Isabelle and her husband, Phillipe, are the parents of Julie, 24, and David, 31. She lists her other interests as horseback riding, horse endurance racing and traveling in wild country!”
