Full details of how the races were scored can be found here (PDF). Kyle Hanson from Team NordicSkiRacer scored the Brumbaugh Cup.
The Brumbaugh Cup is a team-scored competition with each designated race counting each team’s top 5 senior male skiers and top 3 senior female skiers. It is scored like a cross-country running event with first place receiving 1 point; down through the max of 35 male skiers (7 teams x 5 skiers) and 21 female skiers (7 teams x 3 skiers). The lowest point total wins each race and the lowest point total of all designated races wins the Brumbaugh Cup. The designated Brumbaugh races include those races where there is a single Michigan Cup points paying event. More information on scoring the Brumbaugh Cup are on the scoring details page.
Congratulations to the skiers of Hanson Hills / Cross Country Ski Shop!
