#11 Rachel Courtney

11 — Rachel Courtney from Caliento, Manitoba, Canada.
Age 27.

In 2011, Rachel moved to Canada from her native Germany to handle for a musher — she says “that’s when I knew that this was the lifestyle I wanted. Soon after that I met my husband, Serge.” In 2013, they started their own kennel and have been racing all across Canada ever since. Rachel placed sixth overall in the 2019 Pedigree Stage Stop Race. “Last year was my first time racing the Stage Stop and I absolutely loved it! — the people, the communities, the organization, the sponsors, and the vets — just everything about this event. And the best part is that I learned so much in that short week of racing.”
