    Don't think so. They get a bye as a pair skater, not as a single skater. Can someone clarify on that?

    Btw, senior men's free is on. Aarower. Are you at the rink?

    Dube and Brodeur would only get byes if they made the Grand Prix final in pairs. GPF and JGPF start on Thursday in South Korea and if they made the GP, they would need the extra time for travel and overcoming jet lag. Since neither made the GP final , they would not get their byes in singles.

    Asher Hill got a bye to junior men's nationals because of his JGPF in dance.

    I thought Dube and Davidson gave up on singles to focus on pairs?

    I think both Dube and Brodeur gave up on singles this year. They weren't listed on the original entry sheet for the Quebec sectional where even skaters like Phaneuf and Rochette were listed. Phaneuf, Rochette, and Samson all obviously had byes listed by their names so the original Quebec sheet included all the byed skaters.

    Davidson gave up singles last year as he had minor back niggles around the time of the challenge last year.

    Senior pairs' Results

    Byed pairs.

    1. Langlois/Hay(?)
    2. Dube/Davison
    3. Duhamel/Buntin
    4. Mylene BRODEUR / John MATTATALL
    5. Rachel KIRKLAND / Eric RADFORD
    6. Monica PISOTTA / Michael STEWART
    7. Amanda VELENOSI / Mark FERNANDEZ

    Teams from the senior challenges.

    1 Brooke Paulin / Brian Shales WO 46.06 81.60 127.66
    2 Paige Lawrence / Rudi Swiegers SK 40.58 80.54 121.12
    3 Taylor Steele / Christopher Richardson WO 41.46 78.94 120.40
    4 Christi Anne Steele / Adam Johnson WO 40.40 73.28 113.68

    Wow, the pool of pairs teams is getting smaller every year. Again, I am not sure what the exact start order at the nationals will be or if I included all the byed pairs.

    No you got the byed pairs right. Pity we won't even have the maximum 12 pairs at nationals.

    Skate order for nationals short program would be as follows( even put a blank line between each flight)

    Steele/Johnson
    Steele/Richardson
    Lawrence/Swiegers

    Paulin/Shales
    Pisotta/Stewart ( they competed junior at nationals last year)
    Velenosi/Fernandez
    Brodeur/Mattatal

    Kirkland/Radford
    Duhamel/Buntin
    Dube/Davison
    Langlois/Hay

    WOO HOO!!!!! Fedor has "fedorized" the competition once again!!! (To be "fedorized" is yet another Fedor-ism that has been running rampant on FSU. )

    The detailed protocols for the men's short program are now up (I was too lazy to check the other disciplines, though ): http://www.skatecanada.ca/en/events_...r/09senior.htm

    Ouch, it looks like what hurt Fedor the most during this segment of competition was the -GOEs he received on almost all on his elements. His PCS of 29.50 is kinda low for him (even though it was the highest of all the guys); in comparison, his SP PCS at last year's Challenge was 31.05. Well, he did start training at the last minute, so this isn't the end of the world or anything, but I hope between now and Nats he'll work extra hard on ironing out the wrinkles.

    With Brian Orser as his coach, I think he has found new motivation to work his tush off at nationals this year, and finally go to worlds this year.

    Details up for the long.
    http://www.skatecanada.ca/en/events_...senior/sd2.pdf

    Fedor beat Joey by a couple of points (although he had a lower technical score), but both will have to improve a bit to challenge for a medal at Canadians. Both are capable of doing so if they skate clean or close to it. Note that Maxime-Billy landed a 4t with +ve GOE in the long....

    Really? Are you sure it's not a rumour? My sixth sense said that Chris wouldn't return for the 2009/2010 season, but I didn't think his retirement would come this early (assuming it's true). It really makes you wonder what turned him off from competition.

    All hail the generous and mighty aarower! Wow, this article answered a lot of my questions about their new partnership! I wanted to add my own thoughts/feelings about it, but I'm just TOO excited right now!!! *bounces off the wall*
