Monday Iditarod Update #3

Four-time champion Jeff King, 57, stole the lead from 2004 champion Mitch Seavey, 53, by bolting through Koyuk on Monday morning.

Seavey was the first to reach Koyuk, at 7:42 a.m., but King arrived 34 minutes later in second place. He stayed six minutes before leaving for Elim some 40 miles away. After that is White Mountain, where all mushers take an eight-hour break before the final push to Nome.
