The start of the 2020 CrossFit Games season begins October 10 with the live announcement of 20.1 of the CrossFit Open. The Rogue Invitational will be hosting the 20.1 live announcement from Austin, Texas.

Following the workout reveal, Rich Froning and Scott Panchik will go head-to-head.

The live announcement will begin at 8pm Eastern with a special edition of the Rogue Iron Game show beginning at 7:30pm.

It will be the first time that Froning and Panchik will compete against each other during an Open live announcement. Each have made several appearances against other athletes.

The news comes just a couple weeks after Scott Panchik was rumored to be replacing Dre Strohm on Froning’s Mayhem Freedom team. The rumors are still speculation as nothing has been officially announced, but does lead to the question of whether this match-up is a bit of friendly competition heading into the season.

So get ready, we are just 15 days away from the start of the 2020 CrossFit Open!
