Master musher: Minnesota's Anderson wins another sled dog race

Minnesota musher Ryan Anderson is on a roll. Or rather, a runner.

Anderson, a 31-year-old carpenter from Ray, Minn., won the 250-mile Irving Can-Am Crown race in Maine when he crossed the finish line at about 4 a.m. Monday with a time of 31 hours, 22 minutes, 16 seconds, the Associated Press reported. Anderson also won the 2012 race.

Anderson was also the victor in the UP 200 last month in Michigan – his fourth win in a row in that race. (That race was marred this year when a sled dog team collided with a truck.)

"He seems to have tunnel vision when the race starts, and his goal is the finish line," Maine race spokesman Beurmond Banville told the AP.

A widely anticipated Minnesota sled dog race is yet to come. Earlier in the season, due to lack of snow, the 29th annual running of the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon was postponed until March 10. The race was canceled last year because of a lack of snow.

The winner of the 2011 Beargrease race? Yep. Ryan Anderson.
