#4 Tim Thiessen

4— Tim Thiessen from Leadville, Colorado.
Age 36.

Tim’s passion for dog sledding began in 2003 when he was hired to work for a Breckenridge, Colorado dog sled tour company. He then put together his own team of Alaskan Huskies and competed in local races. He caught the “Stage Race bug” at the 2018 Eukanuba 8-Dog Classic, which lead him to run last year’s Stage Stop. Tim and fiancé Natalie share their high altitude homestead in the Mosquito Range of Central Colorado with twenty-three dogs, two cats, a flock of chickens and some ducks. “I look forward to the challenges of training for this race and I’m excited to take part in this esteemed event.”
