I reckon he won't bother, but that's just a guess.

I dont see why he would do it, Empty victory when hes literally won absolutely everything he attempted at 105.

But id assume Hix knows something we dont...

Pretty sure Ben said he doesn't like weighing 115-120kg.

I remember him saying that, but whats is the point cutting weight to win comps you know you cant be challenged, the only bloke who was near him(Dan) isnt even doing 105's next year.

Because hes competing against people he knows aren't in his league,

For me this is about being as strong as humanly possible, I want to be the strongest man ever to live and I wouldn't see any other reason for doing strongman unfortunately unless you think like that.

If Ben wants to compete in 105's and win everything again then fair play, But whats f**king point?

I'd like to do this, events sound great.

Would you be able to put my name down once you've received my cheque?

I'll get it sent Monday/Tuesday time.

Cheers

How is kicking some ass at a 105 comp going to not achieve that !

Plus I'd say a lot of people goals arnt to be as strong as possible . Or else there wouldn't be a natural fed lol

I don't get it, if you are the best at something you shouldnt compete?
Doesn't that make it a 2nd rate title to win (for those allowed to enter) if you aren't able to compete against the best?

Ben absolutely destroyed 105's this year, Only dan was in touching distance of him. He also was one of the most consistent Open strongmen in the country.

Why would you compete against guys who cant beat you and by doing that it will also limit your chances of going to WSM. Unless his goal isn't to qualify for worlds?
