The 2017 STIHL TIMBERSPORTS British Championship, held at BBC Countryfile Live, is the major league of lumberjack sports worldwide. The high-octane sport sees highly-skilled lumberjack athletes chop, saw and slice at speed in the country’s fifth annual Championship event.

“Both technical and physically demanding, STIHL TIMBERSPORTS is a marvellous sport to watch. The lumberjack athletes are remarkably quick and precise as they chop and slice their way through the disciplines,” says Spike Milton, former British Champion and International Sports Director.
