It became a challenging night for the French musher Catherine Mathis-Fontaine. Her dogs didn´t have enough experience with strong winds, and she had to wait in the mountains for a long hour last night.
Clearly I was scared. I`m not used to such weather, and my leaders got unsure and would not go on, she says.
Fortunately, two mushers came, and Mathis-Fontaine could hang on in to checkpoint.
