ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Brent Sass, the Eureka musher who was injured in last year’s Yukon Quest, has won the Gin Gin 200 Sled Dog Race.

Alaska Dispatch News (https://is.gd/SVcrOj) reports the 35-year-old musher won the race Sunday. The Gin Gin is the first distance race of the season in Alaska.

In second was Matt Hall of Eagle, followed by Paul Gebhardt of Kasilof.

In last year’s Yukon Quest International Sled Dog Race, Sass was running neck and neck with Allen Moore near the end of the race when Sass nodded off and fell off his sled, striking his head on ice.

Sass, who was briefly separated from his team, eventually scratched and Moore won.

The Gin Gin 200 trail ran from Meiers Lake to Alpine Creek Lodge near the Denali Highway, and back.
