2020-2021 Season Highlights
Midwest Collegiate Nordic League: American Birkebeiner Intensifies Championship Chase
Twin Cities holds lead in Men’s and Women’s Divisions; record turnout drives standings shakeup
by: Luke Dykowski, Nordic Student Representative
An unrelenting Birkebeiner course saw the largest Midwestern club collegiate field in over three decades dramatically intensify the chase for the MCNL Championship title. Sixty-five skiers across thirteen teams braved wind, unpredictable temperatures, and even blizzard-like snow February 24th through 28th on the storied trails ‘east of Seeley town’.
While 45k of punishing climbing – including an atypical double-ascent of High Point – provided a sharp contrast to the previous weekend’s opening races at the Mora Vasaloppet, the teams appeared eager to test their mettle and cure their near-debilitating Birkie Fever at this, the second MCNL competition of the 2020-21 season.
Although Twin Cities Nordic maintained its lead in both the Men’s and Women’s Divisions, strong showings from the Duluth Area Golden Retriever Men and Buckingham Badger Women kept each team within striking distance of a cumulative League victory. Meanwhile, the arrival of six new teams complicated League standings on and just below the podium – raising the stakes of the upcoming Great Bear Chase.
