For Spear Talk 92, we brought Brent Sass to the show! Brent is an American dog musher who won the 1,000 mile Yukon Quest international sled dog race from Whitehorse, Yukon to Fairbanks, Alaska in 2015, 2019 and 2020. He is well known for rescuing other mushers along the Yukon Quest trail throughout his dogsled racing career. In 2011, the rescue efforts of Sass and his then-lead dog Silver at American Summit in blizzard conditions led to the introduction of the Yukon Quest's Silver Award that recognizes sled dogs that have performed acts of heroism on the trail.
In our discussion we talked about how he got into competitive dog mushing, dealing with isolation and mental helath issues while training, day-to-day life taking care of so many dogs, dog bloodlines, the need for a positive mindset at all times, and so much more!
