Peter Kaiser Iditarod
Bethel musher Peter Kaiser pumped his fists in the air early Wednesday as his eight-dog team trotted across the finish line to win the 2019 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race.
Even in the blowing snow hours before sunrise, fans packed the area around the finish chute. They whistled, cheered and chanted Peter Kaiser’s name as he pulled in at 3:39 a.m.
Alaska Native dancers and drummers performed. Dozens of people had flown in from Bethel to watch the 31-year-old musher notch his first Iditarod victory. It’s something he’s been thinking about since he was a little kid, he said.
“It’s amazing,” Peter Kaiser said, “but honestly it’s not going to sink in here for awhile.”
Peter Kaiser is the first musher of Yup’ik descent to win the 1,000-mile race to Nome, and the first Alaska Native champion since John Baker in 2011.
At the finish line, Peter Kaiser shared a long, emotional hug with his wife, Bethany, and their two children, 6-year-old Ari and 1-year-old Aylee. He walked among his dogs, including leaders 4-year-old Lucy and 7-year-old Morrow. Morrow licked his face.
“It’s just amazing,” Bethany said. “It doesn’t feel real yet.”
