2017 Invitational this weekend

What do you think about the teams? Canada, Pacific, USA and Europe.. too bad it at midnight for us in Cali. Will be interesting to see the events. Hope that the worm doesn't make an appearance.

Would like to see something different.

Air Assaualt Bike max in 90 seconds-
Bench press per weight ratio-

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

I suppose they will have dumbells this time round as this is the new thing for CF this year.

But yes... some new events or events with twists in them that can change the result if they mess up or get stuck would be nice.

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

Castro hinted on Instagram that the cool down show will reveal some big changes for this years Crossfit season.......I guess we shall wait and see. As a Masters athlete I doubt we will see any significant changes to the format more of the same. AMRAPs with gymnastic/olympic lifting limiters in the Open with some slightly heavier and more skilled stuff at the Masters Q. Masters at Regionals would be cool but I doubt it highly.

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

Maybe one weekend of regionals for everyone in the Pro's and then take the top 40 in results. Yes Masters maybe some changes we will see in 12 hours right?

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

CF Invitational.. so much worm so little time... ugh.. have never done this thing but it must be very fun.

So basically they split Europe in to North and South. Good move
They added one South America spot again.. have not seen any one from that region make a move. Teams yes but individual no.
They basically made it hard for Cali, North Cali, Pacific North West, HI, other states and oh yes Western Canada... they went from 10 spots down to 5 spots.. don't think that was the best decision but I guess that they ran the numbers.
Team - now 4 members not 6. I do like this one. Many gyms have 4 good people and not 6. Will be more competitive for sure. I support this.

Wonder what else is coming down the line for change.

When do they announce Open, Regional, MQ and games Dates?

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

I bet CF Mayhem is not pleased about the change.

Re: 2017 Invitational this weekend

Maybe it will cause Rich to go back into the individuals and a duel with Matt? Hehe that would be cool. Might not be that fair anymore but his sour look in second place shows he has the fight left.
