Hi everybody, sledding ,training and taking care of my 38 Siberians are my retreat projects and they occupy a lot of my time. My hobbies are mountain biking, jogging and.....dogs. I love when I begin to train a new young dog. The challenges of the Can-Am 250 call me again this year; I think I could become an addict. I'm anxious to come to see the other mushers at Fort Kent in March.

I also give tourist tours and go for long rides alone with the dogs in the Mastigouche Reserve.

The most exciting thing about mushing is the trust between the dog and the musher. The tie that binds when the dogs work for me and give the best of themselves. The family is very important for me because my wife, my daughter and I have amazing team work when it comes to making mushing and my "official" job possible.

I was an Outfitter Guide in dog sledding tourism at Daaquam in 2004-2005. I have been a musher at Fermont, in the grand north of Quebec since 2013 with an average of 2200 miles each winter, with many expeditions in camping for several days.

    • Mahoosuc 100; 4 place 2016
When I first started my own dog team, after working with other people's dog teams for four years, I said 'I just want to run, I never want to race.' That was the last time I used the phrase 'never' with a dog team, because that first year I had my own dogs, I signed up for the Can Am 30. I don't think I had ever run 30 full miles before. Even unprepared, I was hooked.

The Can Am is a wonderful race community and I can't imagine not showing up for the races. I have made so many friends among the volunteers and the town, and love sharing the trail with my fellow mushers. I am very thankful to the wonderful hosts of Don and Laura Audibert, who have opened their home to myself and the dog team for six years.

I live in the small town of Shelburne, and am the guardian and caregiver of my disabled brother and sister. I have some very patient neighbors, an incredibly supportive community, and so many incredible people who have connected with the dogs. I started in dogs because I love challenge, winter wilderness, and traveling across landscape in silence with friends.

We live in Western Maine in the woods, so the neighbors don't get too bothered by the dog noise. Each of the dogs lives with at least one other buddy in their own space, (no chains), and has daily mayhem / play time with the others. The spring, summer and fall are taken up with work for the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School at our Land Program base near Bethel, Maine. We provide opportunities for upward of 350 students per year to engage on rigorous outdoor expeditions fostering character development, leadership and service. In my position I have the honor to work with hard working, amazing, and dedicated educators and support staff in some of the wonderfull wilderness areas of Maine and New Hampshire. As the summer turns to fall, my focus then shifts to training the dogs, and my work schedule fits in and around the weather patterns and the dogs. We do some guiding and some racing. Both provide the dogs with people to meet and play with as well as a good excuse to get out and explore and have fun.

My husband Andy Bartleet and I work for the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, running wilderness expeditions in the most beautiful and wild regions of the State of Maine. The courses use the challenge of wilderness travel to develop students' strength of character, ability to lead and desire to serve others. At home in the winter, we devote ourselves to mushing, and our canine characters use their leadership talents to instill in us a desire to serve them. Both programs are highly effective.

I run a guide service called Mornington Crescent Sled Dogs (http://www.sledpets.com/index.html), which introduces people to mushing.

We look forward to the Can-Am Crown each year for the community involvement, the dedicated staff and volunteers, and the spectacular trails.

We have chosen this discipline to be able to spend more time sharing the trail with our dogs and maintaining that special bond that we have with them.

I have been strictly sprint racing in the Ontario area. We attended mushing boot camp in Michigan with Ann Stead and Jamie Nelson. We participated in Bristol Dryland and the Siberian Husky Club of Niagara Region in New York for their dryland events. We have also ran the annual Seguin Mail Run in Muskoka for the last 3 yrs.

Moved to Yukon in 2001 from the UK, began dogsports by skijoring with our Rottweillor "Puppy", acquired another Rottweillor "Asha“ - they taught me to ski, I taught them to lead and pull (although in truth they just knew how to do it) .... borrowed an Alaskan or two, then 4, although discovered 3 is quite enough for skijoring, and then I got a sled ..... seperated in 2010, finished the Yukon Quest 300 and Percy deWolff 200 in 2011 with borrowed dogs (thanks Hugh Neff). Started to acquire my own dogs and met Deb Knight, completed the Yukon Quest 300 in 2013, with a joint team. Got together and my kennel of 7 has become 39.

Each race is limited to 30 teams. Rules were posted on October 4. Entry forms are posted on November 1. Applications received before the random drawing on Sunday, November 19, are treated as if they were all received on the day of the drawing. While encouraging early applications, this system also allows time for applicants to read the rules, fill out entry forms accurately and completely, and find a way to submit their applications by email, fax, snail mail, or other means. On November 19, the Can-Am Crown Directors meet for the initial drawing of bib numbers. For example, if 50 acceptable applications for a race have been received by that date, then there would be 50 numbers drawn for that race. Directors use a lottery ball machine to pick bib numbers as they go down the list of applicants. Bib numbers 1 through 30 become confirmed entrants. Numbers greater than 30 are put on the waiting list in the order drawn. After the drawing on November 19, numbers are assigned in the order that acceptable applications are received.

The Can-Am Crown would like to thank Stan Flagg for editing all content in this web site.
