Big Lake musher Kelly Maixner scratches from Iditarod

Big Lake musher Kelly Maixner scratched from the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race on Monday, just 1.5 miles outside Golovin.

Race officials said Maixner told them his dogs were having trouble traveling against a crosswind on the Golovin Bay ice.

Maixner placed 30th as a rookie in 2011.
