Rohn Buser Withdraws from 2013 Iditarod

Rohn Buser

According to the Anchorage Daily News, Rohn Buser, the 23-year-old son of four-time Iditarod champion Martin Buser, has withdrawn from this year’s race. Rohn has completed two Iditarods, coming in 18th place last year. In 2012, he won the Kuskokwim 300 and the Iditarod’s Most Improved Musher Award. However, according to Martin, Rohn’s disappointing sixth-place showing in this year’s Kuskokwim 300 may have contributed to his decision to withdraw.

Rohn is the fifth musher to withdraw from this year’s Iditarod.

There’s a silver lining for Martin. Each year, he and Rohn take turns picking the best dogs from their Happy Trails Kennel for their respective Iditarod teams. With Rohn bowing out, Martin will be have a bigger group of top dogs to choose from.
