Ian “the Torch” Torchia of Rochester, Minnesota, was the winner of the 47th Slumberland American Birkebeiner classic race, held Sunday, Feb. 28, at the American Birkebeiner Trailhead in Cable.

At least six inches of snow fell across the northland Sunday, making the trail conditions slower and more challenging for the skiers. They raced on a 43K looped course starting and finishing at the Birkebeiner Trailhead.
