With just 77 miles to go in the 2014 Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, Jeff King appeared hard to beat. The four-time champion, and one of the winningest mushers in the sport, left White Mountain an hour ahead of his nearest competitor. But on the race’s last day, the leaders headed straight into a dramatic coastal windstorm that left racers frightened and their whereabouts unclear to one another. A year later, King and fellow musher Dallas Seavey describe the events and explain their decisions in one of the most unpredictable finishes in race history.
