I used to love watching tractor pulling and hill climbs on Eurosport when it was Eurosport and not the dull Eurosport UK.

Is there anywhere that broadcasts any of the tractor pulling or hill climbing events.

All I see is either Football, basketball, bmxing or skateboarding
Where should I be pointing my dish ?

Yes, good point. I also loved the crazy Icelandic guys with the massive 4x4 blasters hitting those massive volcanic cliffs!

Sold out to the skateboarding whimps though :-bash

Doh! That's upset about 2 million folks right off the bat...

Eurosport was great they had F1 and were Free-to-air on Astra at the start.

They closed down and then were taken over but have never been the same - shame.

Ahh, tractor pulling - getting that weight as far forward as possible before your rig or engine/s blow up - not that's what I call fun.

Sorry to drag up a very old thread but I am also interested it the very same, does anyone know if there has been any tractor pulling or stuff like this broadcast lately, or know which sat to aim at for best chance of some serious power? :-worship

There is the Timber Championships on Eurosport every Friday, with events such as log cutting using jet powered chainsaws, which is moderately entertaining if you need your niche sport fix!
