European Championship Sleddog
Sleddog training with ATVs

When Iris Mauderer starts the sled dog championship on February 2, 2017, she has already pulled her thousands of kilometers from her four-legged friends during the summer, preferably ATVs

In Inzell, in the middle of the Chiemgau Alps, the World Sleddog Association (WSA) is organizing the Sleddog European Championship from 2 to 5 February 2917. Situated at 700 meters above sea level, the 4,500 inhabitants resort benefits from its snow-sure location and has a world-wide reputation for ice speed racing. In addition, ice hockey, ice-speedway and sleddog racing are among the most popular events. In the disciplines sprint and distance, the teams will return 5 to 40 kilometers on three days in different categories. The team with the fastest overall running time in the individual classes is the new European champion. More than 1,000 sled dogs from over 20 nations and about 10,000 visitors are expected in Inzell.

Training with ATVs and Quad

Including the 42-year-old Iris Mauderer, who belongs to the elite of the German sled dog sport and thus also to the circle of the more contented candidates for the European Championship title. Just like the other athletes, Iris also uses an ATV for training in the summer. "Without a quad, sleigh training does not matter, especially with 12 four-legged athletes!" Iris says.

A sleddog pulls up to ten times its body weight. "The enormous power of my Siberian huskies requires an extremely stable vehicle with tremendously strong brakes," says Iris, who has to brak against up to 3 tons of traction of her dogs. "Although, I have an excellent training ground, seems to me the extremely comfortable suspension of my quads to Good, perfection and unconditional grip on forest and meadow paths sine curvy descents of up to 40 km / h imperative," said the 13-times reigning German champion.

"Every season, on our journeys in the Alpine region and up to Scandinavia, we have a good 20,000 km back, so the sled dog racing sport is a quite time-consuming hobby, which I could not operate without the support of my sponsors Polaris and Happy Dog".
