Tahoe Throwdown: Rogue vs. Again Faster Part 1
The Gang Arrives
“You guys are going to get behind-the-scenes looks at what these people do when they’re not training,” Tony Budding says.
This three-part presentation is the backstory of the Tahoe Throwdown and features footage shot when the clock wasn’t ticking and the athletes weren’t going head to head in grueling tests of fitness.
Find out what goes into planning an epic event like this—or rather, how little planning is involved. According to Rory McKernan of CrossFit Media, “There’s no plan. There’s no script. We’re going to provide a venue for people to be competing, doing these things. It’s really kind of the essence of CrossFit.”
McKernan continues: “All these athletes are just super-cool people when you get to know them, and to have them all in one place at one time is probably just one of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”
“What’s the point of this? It’s to determine the fittest team in the world—no I’m joking,” Dave Castro says. “The point is to have fucking fun, all right?”
