Win your way to the 2018 Stihl Timbersports World Championships in the UK

Stihl Timbersports Liverpool 2018 1

In case you haven’t heard (where have you been?!!), the TIMBERSPORTS® World Championship is coming to Great Britain for the first time in October 2018 and you can win your way there with this great competition! This rapidly-growing sport is based on a series of disciplines using axes and saws where the aim of the game is to chop and saw through huge logs in the quickest times.

Perhaps the most impressive event of the Series is the Hot Saw, where competitors wield a highly-tuned chainsaw, with a chain speed of 240 km/h, to saw three discs or ‘cookies’ from a 46cm poplar log. The World Record time for the Hot Saw is an eye-watering 5.20 seconds – no wonder TIMBERSPORTS®is called the original extreme sport!!

And you can see this event on British shores this year when the TIMBERSPORTS® World Championship comes to the Echo Arena Liverpool in October. The Team World Championship takes place on Friday 18 October, where the Chopperoos from Australia will be keen to regain the World Championship this year, after they lost out to Poland in a tense semi-final last year. Australia had won the previous three World Championships in a row so losing their crown to eventual winners, New Zealand, in 2017 was a bitter blow.

The British Team for the World Championship will be selected depending on their performances at the 2018 British Championship, which will take place on Saturday 4 August at BBC Countryfile Live at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, so the competitors will be going all out for the chance to be selected to represent their country in Liverpool.

Also up for grabs, depending on their performance in August, will be the opportunity to be selected as the British representative in the Individual World Championship, which will take place on Saturday 19 October. The Individual Championship lets the competitors show off their strength, when they take on all six TIMBERSPORTS®disciplinesin separate rounds. Athletes earn points depending on their time in each discipline and the overall winner is the athlete with the most points after all six events, similar to the cumulative points tally used in a heptathlon or decathlon.
