My local strength gym had an event in March, called March Madness. it consisted of cleans and tyre flips. It was really fun to witness.
the big tyre was 600 lbs, and was flipped a totaly of 13 times I think.
click the link to see pictures.
I did not enter the comp, but I do plan to next time around.

and I love my gym. lots of powerlifters and strongman. the gym has that raw hole in the wall feel, small, friendly, with intense training going on. and its catered towards strength athletes with real wide bars, yokes, stones, tyres, etc.

haha this is true. I am a vagabond.
there is no denying this. and Im a wee bit crazy, if not more. :lol:

I see myself basing my travels out of here though while I put myself through college.
(college is the reason I moved here).

and this is a pretty rad gym. so if anyone ever comes through Austin get at me, and I can show you all the cool places to eat, explore, and train, etc.
and you can come flip tyres with me.
