Canadian Championships 2024

Be part of the extreme AXE-TION of STIHL TIMBERSPORTS®!

Filmed for TV on TSN.

This adrenaline-fueled event showcases the top male and female logger sport athletes from across the country as they compete in a series of disciplines with razor sharp axes and powerful chain saws in a race against the clock to determine who is the best logger sports athlete in the nation that will represent Canada on the World stage against 26 other nations.

The athletes put it all on the line and leave it all on the stage as they battle to be crowned the 2024 STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® National Champion!

On Saturday August 17 at 6:00pm the powerful Pro division athletes compete in the individual competition for the prestigious title of Canadian champion.  Returning champion Ben Cumberland will have to defend his title against a formidable roster of opponents such as Marcel ‘The Beast from the East’ Dupuis and BC’s own Big Bill Bischoff and former World Champion, Stirling Hart.

About the competition:

The athletes compete in 6 TIMBERSPORTS® disciplines through three elimination rounds. Points are awarded based on the quickest times in each discipline. At the end of each round, the athletes with the lowest point totals are eliminated. The six athletes with the highest point totals compete for the title in the final round, which involves the fan favourite, the deafening yet impressive Hot Saw discipline. The athlete with the highest points total after all six disciplines is crowned STIHL TIMBERSPORTS® Canadian Champion and will represent Canada at the World Championships in Europe.

On Sunday August 18 at 2:00pm the AXE-TION continues with two spectacular events in one!

To kick off the afternoon the Pro’s return with their super-charged hot saws to compete in the HOT SAW SHOWDOWN! Quite possibly the loudest and most intense sporting competition combining “man” and machine.  Bring your earplugs!

About the competition:

The athletes must wield their hot saws with speed and precision to eliminate their opponent.  No easy task given the average hot saw weighs in at around 27kg. Hot Saws are custom-built chain saws, usually made with the engine of a dirt bike, snowmobile or jet ski, delivering upwards of 60 horsepower! Carrying one of these beasts is enough of a challenge, let alone controlling the power to cut three cookies (or discs) from the 46 cm diameter log within a 15cm margin in mere seconds.  These saws cut through wood like a hot knife in butter, with the average time to make three cuts coming in between 5 and 8 seconds!

We save the best for last with the toughest women in the country taking to the stage to show you that axes and chain saws aren’t just for the boys.  These lumberjills have honed their skills to chop and saw through massive blocks of wood with speed and precision.  Quebec’s Stephanie Naud defends her National title against the country’s best including BC’s own Andrea Hand and Ally Briscoe, the current world record holder in single buck saw. You won’t want to miss a single moment of this exhilarating event!

About the competition:

The top 8 female athletes will convene to battle it out across 4 disciplines; the standing block chop, underhand chop, single buck and stock saw.

The woman with the highest point score will win be crowned the 2024 Champion and immediately qualify to represent Canada at the International Women’s Cup in Europe.
