Starting number 181 was the last team out for the F400. With Morten Paulsen behind the sled, we belive that he is not going to be the last man finishing.

Morten Paulsen is one ot the veterans of Femundløpet and has been participing ten times in the last years and with a 10th place in 2010 as hes best placement. 

This year he is mushing a team that has been trained in hight altitudes in France. With 59 years, member of Hodalen IL Hundekjørergruppe, we are look forward that he mushes into the upper part of the this years reslut list. Himself he is rowing down hes ambitions a little bit. 

- As long as I´m not finishing last, i´m happy, he says only a few minutes befor he gets ready in the starting section.

 To answer the question, if he is excited, is he taking a little brake.

- For one or the other reason I am, he smiles and leafs the start area, cheered by all the spectators who still where present.
