While Iditarod mushers Nic Petit, Joar Leifseth Ulsom and defending champion Mitch Seavey remained the three in the lead, Nordman said anything could happen.
"It's definitely not over," he said. "It's been a really exciting race."
If he had to guess, he said, he would expect the first musher into Nome at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday — slower than the 2013 Iditarod, the last time the race followed the southern route and much slower than the 2017 Iditarod, when Mitch Seavey set a new record.
