Mushers and their husky's are competing in Östersund, Sweden in the world championship for polar dogs. Three days in a row they go on the trail at the Biathlon Ski Arena for a time trial. The fastest after three days is the world champion. Competition is in different classes: with one or two dogs on ski's (Skijoring) with 2, 4, 6 or 8 dogs on a sled and there is an unlimited class where some mushers race with 14 dogs.
