Martin Massicotte, of St-Tite, Quebec, is a rookie to the Iditarod but a seasoned musher. As a teenager he ran sprint races and started his long-distance career in 1996 racing distances from 60 to 400 miles. Most of his races were run in Northeastern America, then in 2003 he traveled to Alaska to run the Yukon Quest and placed 6th. After seeing video of the Iditarod, he knew at that moment his dream would be to enter the race. This year Martin intends to fulfill this dream.
