20— Geneva Lyon from Brightwood, Oregon.
Geneva became interested in mushing at the age of four and says that she’s “always loved dogs and all animals.” Born and raised on a small farm in rural southern Oregon, she grew up snowboarding, then got into skijoring and fell in love with driving a dog team. She and her husband Tim, stepson Dillon, and daughter Shade live and train on and around Mt. Hood in Oregon. Geneva ran the 2019 Eukanuba 8-Dog Classic. “I’m excited for a chance to do the big race!”
