Women Mushers Sweep Montana Race To The Sky.

Jessie Royer of Seeley Lake won the 300-mile Montana Race to the Sky Monday night, building on her legacy as the musher with the most wins in the annual sled dog race.

Royer started her winning career in the Race to the Sky in 1994 at age 17 and continued with wins in 2015, 2016 and 2018. She still holds the record for youngest champion from her 1994 win. Seven of the last eight champions were also women.

Josi Thyr, a 26-year-old musher living in the Seeley Lake area, finished the 100-mile run of the Montana Race to the Sky sled dog race early Sunday, while her friend and mentor Jessie Royer threatened to turn the 300-mile race into a runaway.
