Bailey VitelloHometown: Milan, NH
Bailey Cross Vitello is a 26-year-old second-generation musher from Milan, NH. Last year he completed a lifelong dream, crossing the Iditarod finish line with a happy and healthy dog team in 24th place. In addition to finishing Iditarod on his first try, he received Rookie of the Year at the 2023 Kobuk 440 coming in 5th place among a group of well-established distance mushers. Training in Alaska with such early snow has been a game changer and he is happy to call Nenana, AK his home away from home. Bailey is very excited and determined to take on the 2024 Iditarod Trail with a competitive race schedule and an incredible dog team. This is sure to be a very exciting race season for Team Bailey and he wants to thank each and every person who supports the team whether it’s cheering them on, sponsoring a dog or giving advice along the way.
