16 — Cathy Rivest from St-Paul-de-Joliette, Quebec, Canada.
Cathy began sledding as a twelve-year-old helping to run the family sled dog tour business. That tourist business quickly turned to competition — competitive sled dog racing. Cathy has raced sprint class, 4-dog and 6-dogs, and dryland. She’s been an active part of Quebec’s Provincial Federation for the past ten years. When not racing, Cathy has worked the past 25 years as a prosthetist with amputees. She says that her favorite sprint race is Laconia, New Hampshire. “I’m really excited to race this year’s Stage Stop with my brother Marco Rivest’s team.”
