Don Kane honored at MI Cup Relays

Wed, Mar  19, 2008 - By Ernie Brumbaugh

Don Kane's original idea of a race series in the Lower peninsula modeled on the World Cup Series for Nordic Ski Racers was born in 1983. Although the series was cancelled that year due to lack of snow, it returned in 1984 and has grown into one of the race best series in America 25 years later.

Don moved out of state for an extended period of time pursuing an academic career in Biology and Genetics. He recently returned to Michigan as a professor at Western Michigan University.

With the Silver Anniversary of the Michigan Cup Series this year, it is only appropriate to celebrate Don's orginal contribution to the skiing community by expressing the thanks of the skiers of the Michigan Cup.
