Ten men have earned the right to battle for the title.
The Tour travels around the globe finding the world's best strongmen and tests them on a number of brutally difficult events. The top three athletes from each contest compete at the World's Strongest Man finals which are held in Los Angeles at the end of the series. This year there are five grand prix - Australia, Finland, Hungary, UK and Poland. British stars that compete in the tour include some old favourites such as Dartford's giant Terry Hollands, Gloucester's British Champion Laurence Shahlaei and the 46 year old veteran from Blackburn, Mark Felix.
