The Michigan Cup Series has three team awards: The Baic Cup for best junior team, the Brumbaugh Cup for best senior team, and the Michigan Cup for the best overall team.
The Brumbaugh Cup is a team scored competition with each team’s top 5 senior male skiers and top 3 senior female skiers used to score. 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.
This year, the Brumbaugh Cup scoring will be done by Team NordicSkiRacer's Kyle Hanson and Jay Woodbeck. They have created an automated spreadsheet that calculates the Brumbaugh points going forward and hope it allows thm to turn around the points within the day they receive results.
Many thanks to Hanson Hills/Cross County Ski Shop's Cris Jones who did a great job scoring the Michigan Cup the past several years!
After three races, the Cross Country Ski Headquarters has a big lead in the competition, with 184 points. Last year's Brumbaugh Cup winner, Team NordicSkiRacer, is far behind in second place with 389 points. Grand Rapids Nordic is in third with 448 points.
