East Coast boys Austin Malleolo and James Hobart are on the road again, this time invading Northern California before embarking on a voyage that will include stops in San Francisco, Sacramento, Salt Lake and Denver.
In Part 1, Hobart and Malleolo are on holy ground, visiting the famous parking lot of the original CrossFit box with Annie Sakamoto. Then it’s time for a beach WOD with Sakamato before hitting the rental lot to find the finest vehicle for the trip (read: something Malleolo isn’t afraid to drive).
In Part 2, the guys enjoy another Santa Cruz tradition: a meal at the Silver Spur with none other than Original Firebreather Greg Amundson. Then it’s off to visit Dave Castro at The Ranch in Aromas, home of the first three editions of the CrossFit Games. Gunfire, of course, is mandatory at this point.
Enticed by the lure of a good old CrossFit road trip, Pat Sherwood loads up his laptop and gets in the van. With the trio complete, it’s time for serious shenanigans involving Jason Khalipa. Finally, rumors of a Supple Leopard sighting send the crew to San Francisco.
