9 — Lina Streeper from Fort Nelson, British Columbia, Canada.
Lina grew up in a small community in northern Sweden, and became fascinated with sled dogs at a young age. After moving to Canada in 2007, she focused on professional sled dog racing, and has become a part of “the famous mushing dynasty” known as Streeper Kennels. A noteworthy addition to her resume is last year’s first place in the Pas Manitoba World Championships. She and husband, Buddy Streeper, own and operate Streeper Kennels in Fort Nelson, British Columbia. They have two wonderful daughters, Alva and Clara. “I love dogs, and I love Wyoming. I’m proud to be returning to this year’s Stage Stop Race, and I wish all my Stage Stop family a safe and successful event!”
