In an interview with race official at the finish line, Moore explained how the last few miles of the trail proved to be challenging.

"We got up 2-3 inches of snow. It made things a little slower but we just chugged along."


Moore was the first musher to make it past the Dawson City central checkpoint.

The 60-year-old veteran musher takes his third Yukon Quest championship.
