Evan as the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race approaches, Stitt says he's pioneering a new sport in the dog-mushing hotbed of Willow. Here's what he had to say about the video:
"I live in Willow Alaska. I was born in Michigan. I'm 17 years old and have been running dogs for 10 years, and I have been racing dogs for 7 years. I train my own dogs and like it. After being on the back of a dog sled for hours on end, you get a little bored, so for me as I'm very athletic I start trying different things, like standing on my handlebar of my sled to snowboarding with 24 dogs. I would like to see this become a sport and maybe one day I'll go to Nome with snowboard and dogs."
