The rest of the top five saw some changes. Cody Barber and Brett Lapham, who KNOM previously reported as being in fourth position on the morning of Feb. 21, in fact scratched out Sunday night at 10:34 p.m. Shane Barber and Troy Conlon are now in fourth position; they checked into Nome at 5:09 p.m. on Feb. 21. Andrew Gumley and Klinton VanWingerden have moved up to fifth position. They actually arrived in Nome before Barber and Conlon, at 3:39 p.m., but Gumley and VanWingerden have used fewer layover hours.
