With only a month to go do we know the line up?

Also how come they're not doing the log championship this year? I was really looking forward to that

I've barely even seen this advertised let alone mentioned.

Terry is competing I believe, Loz and Ed too. Should be a good battle!

Benjamin Mark Felix Button should be there too I'd imagine.

Hixxy injured it seems?

It's at Doncaster dome at the end of January.

The only one I've seen mention it is terry and loz, I assume ed and Felix will be there, not heard anything about hixxy in a while. There's usually some foreign invites too isn't there?

Felix is there.

Events are:

Viking press,
Front hold,
Conans,
Car carry,
Stones.

I also feel there may have been a sixth event, but i cant remember it now.

If there's no deadlift I'll be seriously upset!
Is it just me that finds the front hold boring to watch?

I concur, front holds like an ugly person at an orgy. Yes they have a part to play but they're just making up the numbers.

For the athletes though, it's got to go down as an energy saving event.

I can't see anyone beating Hall tbh, not with 2 shoulder dominant events!

Been watching strongman on catch up, Bish is a beast too, he is looking strong as f**k. Top 3 in 2016 maybe!

Indeed! For a 'smaller' athlete amongst the pack, he is very strong. He know what he needs to work on and is making very good progress. One to watch for sure.

Is there an official event calender out too with all the events on for this year?

From memory, worlds was a few days after the Brits last year and that had an impact on some.

^^ Viking press i actually quite enjoy, its an impressive looking bit of kit when they have a quad or the like on.

Front hold and conans i dont mind, but i feel they have been done a bit too much recently.

Im sure there will be a deadlift event, probably car deadlift or weight for reps as Europes will almost certainly have the deadlift championship again to cover max deads.
