BOULDER—Colorado's Magnus Boee was dominant throughout the 2021 season, and he was awarded for that effort, earning two MVP honors from the RMISA Saturday.
Boee won both the Men's Classic MVP honor and the Men's Freestyle MVP honor. This is the first season the award has been split between disciplines, but it didn't matter for Boee, who was dominant in both disciplines throughout the season. The award is given to the skier who accumulates the most NCAA Qualification points in each given discipline in the regular season, which consisted of four meets in 2021.
In classic action, he won the award by 32 points, picking up 151 out of a possible 160 points with three wins and one fourth place showing on the season. A Utah trio including Ola Jordheim (119), Bjorn Riksaasen (116) and Sam Hendry (114) were a close second through fourth place with Sigurd Roenning from Alaska Anchorage taking fifth place with 95 points.
He was more dominant in freestyle action, picking up three wins and a third place for 154 points and beating Riksaasen by 30 points with his total of 124. Hendry and Jordheim were again in the top four with 104 and 97 points, respectively, and Denver's Bernhard Flaschberger was fifth with 96 points.
Boee is the third CU skier in the last six years to win the award alongside Rune Oedegaard in 2015 and Mads Stroem in 2016. Boee has eight wins on the season after also winning both discipline races at the RMISA Championships.
