#5 — Justin Fortier from Saint-Raymond, Québec, Canada.
Justin started mushing at the age of 12 and says he “immediately fell in love with this life style.” He first enjoyed shorter ten-mile sprint races, and raced in the Québec circuit for several years. In 2015, Justin decided to try something new, loaded up 24 dogs, and traveled over 2,000 miles to race The Pas World Championship and the Cross Lake Trappers Festival Race in Manitoba. Somewhere along the way he met Fanny Houle at a sled dog race and says, “we’re now waiting for a lil’ musher to be born in December. We always wanted to come to Wyoming to visit and can’t wait to race there.”
