Intermediate competitions comprise up to six disciplines depending on the individual skill level of the participating Intermediates. Intermediates are all athletes above the age of 25 who are not yet able to compete in all six disciplines with the corresponding Pro wood diameter within the time limits.
Intermediate competitions are relatively new in the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series. These competitions include all athletes who are older than 25 and not yet able to compete in all six disciplines with the corresponding Pro wood diameter within the time limits. Both men and women can compete as intermediates if they have the required skill level.
Intermediate competitions comprise up to six disciplines depending on the individual skill level of the participating Intermediates. The competitions may feature all athletes in the basic disciplines, but some of them might not be able to compete in more advanced disciplines like Standing Block Chop, Springboard or Hot Saw.
One of the main aims of the Intermediate competitions is to promote the development of older athletes and to help them move towards competing at Pro level.
Intermediates chop and saw on smaller wood block diametres, apart from in the Stock Saw, as part of their preparation towards the Pro wood diametres.
All athletes compete in up to six disciplines in the following order: Springboard with one board, Stock Saw, Standing Block Chop, Single Buck, Underhand Chop and Hot Saw (with a STIHL MS 881 only). Once all athletes have completed a discipline, points are awarded on the times recorded. The maximum points awarded for each discipline is determined by the number of participating athletes. For example, in a competition with eight athletes, the first placed athlete in a discipline is awarded eight points, down to one point for eighth place. Any rule infringements will result in a disqualification and zero points in that discipline. The athlete who achieves the most points across all disciplines is the winner of the competition.
