Canadian Third in Iditasport Impossible

Greg Blackwell of Fernie, B.C. just dropped us a line to let us know that he finished 3rd in the Iditasport Impossible - Knik to Nome, Alaska. The Impossible is an extension of the Extreme race, which ends in McGrath, Alaska after the riders and skiers have covered 571 kilometres (won by Joh Stamstad for the fourth time). The 'real' hardcore types continue on to Nome, covering a total of 1743 kilometres. This is sort of like the difference between a little crazy and completely round the bend...
