• Short Summary

    Contestants in the Canadian Dog Sled Derby cover a racecourse of 99 miles.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Dog Sled Derby in Canada".

    At Quebec's International Dog Sled Derby we see men racing over a snowy course, in sledges pulled by dogs. Small crowds of people watch the men go by; larger crowds watch from the spectator stand. Several shots of the winning champion driver, Pete Mournot (sp? Mournon?) and his head dog as they cross the finishing line. Mournot is covered with coats after his freezing 99 mile race.
