The F600 race has gotten a new beat. This time, the rhythm is provided by Robert Sørliveien and Birgitte Næss Wærner.

It looks like Robert is using his tactic of mushing steadily at first and then increasing the tempo. Birgitte has fought to stay with Robert from the start, she has maintained a steady tempo all the way till Grimsbu. It will be very interesting to see if she manages to keep up with Robert on the way to Tynset. The next stage of the race will be crucial for these musher’s to see who will get ahead in the race.

Approximately 45 minutes after the duo is Arnt Ola Skjervefossen. He is nearly out of the chase between the Robert and Birgitte. However, the race is still wide open!
