Can the defending champions hold on, or will prior champions such as Jason Khalipa and Thorisdottir reclaim the their titles? Or perhaps we will see someone new altogether? It's far too early to tell, as the Open is the only the first of the rounds of competitions, and typically entails more human-scale workouts than the other competitions. The succeeding rounds of competition will see the weightier weights and semi-masochistic requirements formulated by the mastermind madman himself, Dave Castro. Last year Castro commanded competitors in the finals row a half-marathon as part of one of the competitions. What sick and twisted routines we will see in 2014?
