Nicolas Petit

Hometown: Big Lake, Alaska


Nicolas was born in France, raised in New Mexico and moved to Girdwood, Alaska. He began racing while helping Jim Lanier train for Iditarod in 2011 and in 2012 when Jim had to sit out the race with hip replacement surgery he let Nick run his first Iditarod. That’s how Jim Lanier changed Nicolas Petit’s life, the rest is history.
