Vasaloppet with Dogs?

The oldest long cross country ski competition, Vasaloppet in Dalecarlia, Sweden, is always run on the first Sunday in March. We got up early to watch it on TV, as we usually do.

There are a lot of minor conmetitions in the week preceding the main competition. I believe there should be a dog and ski competition. Sled dogs can run alongside fast cross country skiers and the fastest pair would win. I am sure this would make for great TV entertainment, just like the ordinary Vasaloppet.

I claim no copyright on this idea. If the enterprise behind Vasaloppet would want to arrange a dog competition, I would just be happy about it.
