Any Olympic skiers going to be at Birkie? Or elite Germans?

Postby RCRVRP » Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:32 am

Does anyone know if any of the Olympic skiers from any country are going to ski the Birkie?

Also does anyone know if any German nationals will be there to ski?

Is so do you know names and bib numbers?

What about Northug - he was left off the Norwegian team. If there is ever a year to do it, this would be it!

I was thinking of the real Birkebeiner - I certainly wouldn't expect Northug to show up in Wisco.

Hey now, Bjorn Daehle and Vegard Ulvang have skied the American Birkebeiner :)

Sure it was post-retirement. I do not know anything about what Northug is up to. Not retired, but not racing much... hiatus?

I should edit my post - IMO Northug should ski in Cable, WI - it would be great exposure for the sport. I'm just not sure if he's ever aware that there's an American version.
