Team Nunavut scratches from 3,300-km Nfld. snowmobile race
Jason Aliqatuqtuq and Jimmy Noble Jr. finish Labrador City's Cain's Quest after second checkpoint
Team Nunavut has scratched from a 3,300-kilometre snowmobile race out of Labrador City, N.L.
At stake is a $100,000 purse, including $50,000 for first place, $30,000 for second and $20,000 for third.
That purse won't be coming home to the North though; team Nunavut, the only representative from the three territories, scratched Saturday, after reaching the race's second checkpoint in Goose Bay, N.L.
The team included Iqaluit's Jason Aliqatuqtuq and Jimmy Noble Jr., both considered avid outdoorsmen and snowmobilers.
