17 — Cathy Rivest from St-Paul-de-Joliette, Quebec, Canada.
Cathy is a prosthetist and has worked with amputees for 25 years. She began dogsledding at age 12 helping to run the family sled dog tour business for tourists. That business quickly turned to competitive sled dog racing. Cathy has raced sprint class, 4-dog and 6-dog as well as dryland. She’s been an active part of Quebec’s Provincial Federation for the past 10 years. She says that her favorite sprint race is Laconia, New Hampshire but says, “I’m really excited to race this year’s Stage Stop with my brother Marco Rivest’s team.”
