Lance Mackey, Uncommon Sportsman's prediction, has won the Iditarod

Lance Mackey has won the Iditarod. The Big Lead wonders if this solidifies Mackey as the best musher ever. Considering his success at Yukon Quest as well, we'd say that he's definitely in the running. We said it at the start of the race and we'll say it again. If there's one thing Lance Mackey knows how to do, it's mush.

I'm trying to find exactly what sort of ratio Mackey used for his run-rest strategy, and so far, this is all I've seen:

Mackey took some risky moves, pushing his dogs to the brink and skipping much-needed rest himself but he blew past King to trot to the finish line on Nome's Front Street to take the Iditarod at 2:46 a.m. Wednesday. His official time was nine days, 11 hours, 46 minutes and 48 seconds. King was second, reaching the finish at 4:05 a.m.

Congratulations Lance Mackey!
