STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® SERIES
STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® is an international extreme sport competition series. Not for nothing is it regarded as the top class in the sport – it has the best athletes, the highest spectator numbers and the biggest media coverage. In 1985, STIHL USA joined forces with sports channel ESPN to create the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series; 2019 marks the 19th year for the competition series in Europe. STIHL, the series' main sponsor, has now been joined by a number of other partners, including LIEBHERR and VW Commercial Vehicles.
TIMBERSPORTS® competitions are multi-discipline events. They comprise six disciplines – with the exception of Rookie competitions, team competitions and the Champions Trophy format that have four disciplines – and they demand a high level of technical ability, precision and strength. The winner is the one who collects the most points during the competition; this means athletes have to show peak performance and extreme personal fitness for the whole competition.
The shows of the STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Series stand for action and thrilling entertainment.
