Canadian retakes Iditarod lead; 1 dog dies

Canadian musher Sebastian Schnuelle reclaimed the lead in the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Tuesday.
Schnuelle was the first musher to reach the Nikolai checkpoint, about 350 miles (560 kilometers) into the 1,100-mile (1,770-kilometer) race to Nome.
He pulled in one minute ahead of Hugh Neff. About 30 minutes later, Paul Gebhardt reached Nikolai.
Also, marshal Mark Nordman reported the first dog death of the race. He said a 6-year-old male named Victor in the team of musher Jeff Holt died between the Rainy Pass and Rohn checkpoints.
Bob Hickel, a 62-year-old from Anchorage, became the first musher to scratch, withdrawing at the Finger Lake checkpoint. That left 66 mushers.
