Fancy watching the Stihl TIMBERSPORTS® British Championship? Once again, BBC Countryfile Live is playing host to the original extreme sport with the British Championship taking place on Saturday 4 August, and STIHL are offering you the chance to be there! Held in the grounds of Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, BBC Countryfile Live runs from 2 – 5 August 2018 and will be packed full of activities and exhibitors to keep you entertained all day. STIHL will be there to impress visitors with TIMBERSPORTS® Roadshows, speed chainsaw carving and our STIHL SHED Talks where gardening experts, Jane Moore, Matt Biggs and the Two Thirsty Gardeners, will be on hand to share their knowledge.
And the TIMBERSPORTS® action is not to be missed this year, with the British athletes not only competing for the Championship but also for the chance to qualify for the World Championship, which will be held in Great Britain for the first time this year at the Echo Arena Liverpool. The athletes will have to perform at their best in all six TIMBERSPORTS® disciplines, including the Stock Saw, where the competitors use a standard STIHL MS 661 C-M chainsaw to cut two ‘cookies’ or discs from a 40cm log in the fastest time – the World record is 9.95 seconds! Arbtalk has 4 pairs of tickets* to give away, kindly sponsored by Stihl, so if you want the chance to see the British athletes in action at BBC Countryfile Live, just answer this simple question by commenting below:
