Slide show: STIHL Timbersports showdown

Nineteen of the nation’s top lumberjack athletes went head-to-head in sawdust-and-chip-flying action during the STIHL Timbersports Series U.S. championship.

“We couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the STIHL Timbersports Series,” said Brad Sorgen, executive producer of the event. “We drew a great crowd in Central Park, and we had the opportunity to showcase the highest level of lumberjack athletic competitions to an entirely new and excited fanbase. The 30th anniversary was an incredible success for the Series.”

The event will be broadcast on ABC Oct. 11, 18 and 25.

In addition to earning the title of the best lumberjack athlete in the country, West Virginia native Matt Cogar was awarded a brand new Ram Truck for his win. Cogar will also represent the U.S. team at the World Championship in Poland in November.
