Husky Dog Sledding Race

Dog sledding race was held in Linstvyanka in March 8, a day of Winteriada opening. Two sleds depart from Baikal Center for Dog Sledding. Boris Sobolev drove a sled with lead dog Jazz (champion of Russia), and another musher Oleg Tyuryumin a sled with lead dog called Zvonok. The course went across the lake Baikal ice surface to Angara river headwaters and back. It covered a 3 km (1.8 miles) distance. Black ice areas made the course significantly tougher to race. Though both participants crossed the finish line with less then a minute difference. Dog sled driven by Boris Sobolev finished first (10 min. 46 sec.), and Oleg Tyuryumins sled came in a close second (11 min. 20 sec.).
