Dimitar is coming over tonight to train Conans wheels, so looks like hicks isn't doing the truck pull that is great news.

Shaw for the win. Just hope it's a good and close battle though. Not fussed who wins really.

Group 1

Shaw
Caron

Group 2

Bjornsson
Hicks

Group 3

Savickas
Shahlael or Shivlyakov (I will go for Shahlael though)

Group 4

Pritchett
Radzikowski or Felix (I will go with Felix though)

Group 5

Burke
Hall or Caruso or Szymanski (These three were all in the same group last year and it was pretty close. I will go with Hall though).

Out of the 30 competitors, 13 are native English speakers (14 if Caron is bilingual).

Thor could potentially win yoke, truck pull, power stairs, and stones. Deadlift and Log will be instrumental events.

Like I've said before depending on who makes final Thor could lose a lot of points on log. What's his pb log anyway anyone know?

Feel for Felix...when are they going to give the guy a break groups wise!? Also had grp of death last year....

Is the Pole in Hixx's group the Arnolds beast? If so, he'll be real tough

Thigpen is (or was) no slouch either

Good group though on whole

Its a different pole. Kobylarz competed last year and did well. I actually think he will be the stiffest opposition to Hicks.

All the groups look tough.

Events in the heats look good.

Assuming that norse hammers refer to a forward/side hold then I think the second place in group 2 will be between hixxy and savatinov.

Likewise in group 3 nystrom could be a dark horse.

I also see arsjo sailing through his group as the events suit him perfectly.

Will be very interesting to see who makes it through as I don't see any groups where two guys are all but guaranteed qualification like most years.

In the final I have thor first, Shaw second and Z third but it could go to any of the three dependant on who makes it through to the final.
