Join Mikko Salo, the 2009 CrossFit Games champion, on his road trip across America—but this trip isn’t quite the same as the CrossFit Journal’s last Road Trip with Dave Lipson, Rob Orlando and Dave Castro. A man of few words, Salo is rarely distracted from his quest to better his training.
Salo’s journey continues at Rogue Fitness, home of 2010 Games champion Graham Holmberg. Today’s topic is bringing Rogue equipment to Europe, which Salo is organizing with the owner of Rogue Fitness, Bill Henniger.
“We’re like going to be the dealers of Rogue equipment in Europe, so there will be Rogue Europe,” Salo says. “It’s a pretty big thing, so I’m really excited. Lots of work to do, but I think it’s big step for Rogue and big step for us also.”
Back to training, Salo joins Holmberg for some Olympic lifting at his gym, Rogue Fitness CrossFit Columbus. Salo shares plans to train more in the U.S. and work for Rogue Fitness.
“It’s quite interesting times for me now,” he says.
