Hometown: Dagali, NORWAY
Ralph Johannessen, 56, was born and raised in Bergen, Norway. Ralph started mushing in 1973 after having grown up in a household with active hunting dogs. He has won all the long distance races in Norway, and is the reigning Norwegian long distance champion. His racing kennel is based at Dagali, close to the Hardangervidda national park, where he enjoys an active outdoor life at all seasons. He is a member of Hallingen Hundekoyrarlag.
Ralph became interested in racing the Iditarod after his good friend Robert Sørlie won his first champion title in 2003. Having raced at top level in Norway for numerous years, Ralph is now ready for a new challenge and will be bringing his own dog team from Norway to the Iditarod.
Ralph is the father of two adult children, Marte and Sondre.
