Molburg-Bicknell sits in 68th place out of 68 mushers as of 9:44 p.m. Wednesday, according to the Iditarod's official Web site.

After sledding into Rainy Pass at 5:08 a.m. Tuesday, she used her 24-hour layover before shipping off at 9:12 a.m. Wednesday. She was the last musher to leave Rainy Pass.

Of the 68 dog teams still competing only 11 have used the 24-hour layover. Each musher must use one eight-hour and one 24-hour rest period during the race.

Up next for Molburg-Bicknell is a 48-mile trip to Rohn, followed by another 75 miles to Nikolai.

Lance Mackey continues to lead after leaving Ophir at 6:50 a.m. Wednesday.

Skagway's Hugh Neff sits in 22nd place reaching Takotna at 9:13 a.m. Wednesday.
