Iditarod 2011: At the Finish

John Baker after winning the 2011 Iditarod from Kyle on Vimeo.

John Baker gets my vote for Athlete of the Year for 2011. The Iditarod is called "The Last great Race," and it's more than that. I can't think of one of our world famous, highly paid, self-aggrandizing athletes in other sports who could endure what John Baker did during his run from Anchorage to Nome. They certainly wouldn't do it for $50,000 and a truck.
