Nicolas Petit, grew up in Normandy and always loved animals. Nick got into mushing by adopting “Ugly”, a gorgeous Alaskan Mutt. He put a harness on him and the adventure began. Nick developed his passion for sled dogs, while living in Girdwood, Alaska, and working for Dario Daniels, whose training techniques live on through Nick’s calm mushing demeanor. Nick has won all of his mid-distance races this year, including the Copper Basin 300 and the Tustumena 200. He placed 2nd in the 2018 Iditarod.
