    Great to see FLEUR MAXWELL on the entry list, she wins hands down on PCS but I worry for her with the jumps.

    Julia Sebestyen should win the competition, maybe Candice Didier 2nd and Joshi Helgesson third, dont count out Yan Liu or Anastasia Gimazetdinova who have the experience.

    GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

    The official entries are up at the Nebelhorn Webpage

    http://www.eislauf-union.de/NebelhornTrophy2009.html

    Apparently they cut down the entries to one skater/team in each category by country (except for Host Country Germany). So no Flatt, Bradley, Takeda, Hubbells, Platonova/Grachev :(

    Still an amazing field and am soo excited to see who gets the remaining spots.

    Greece has added an ice dance team. I will update my Olympic qualifying post for ice dance.

    FANTASTIC line up! Especially for ladies.

    You got the qualification competition for the open 7 Olympic spots. BUT, the Podium battle is going to be great.

    Alissa Czisny vs. Fumie Suguri vs. Sarah Meier vs. Kiira Korpi

    I love it! Have not been this excited about Nebelhorn Trophy in a long time!

    I'm not sure Fleur will get the highest PCS. Are you guys forgetting Fumie Suguri and Sarah Meier? I think those two will get the highest PCS. Anyways, I hope Fumie wins, despite Japan already being qualified for the Olympics.



    Good luck to all!

    I know that a French TV station have bought the rights to show the Nebelhorn Trophy. I think TF1 of Eurosport! I hope.

    Uahhh! How great is that. Even if it is TF1 (mostly skating gets broadcasted on TF3 or TF4 though)... But I sincerely hope that it's Eurosport.

    Great line up. Apart from Stephane Lambiel and Julia Sebestyen the rest of the remaining spots seem to be wide open, they really need a good SP to get points advantage.

    Does anyone know if British Eurosport is showing Nebelhorn (maybe not)

    I seriously doubt UK Eurosport will show any of it. We'll be lucky to have GPs again.

    I think that other than Stephane and Julia, there are others who are pretty likely to make it: Fedor Andreev if his paperwork is sorted out and Stefan Lindemann if he's healthy; in the ladies, Candice Didier, Cantu, Katz, and whichever Helgesson ends up going all seem likely to qualify (though Katz and Helgesson would also need to finish top-10 at Euros, most likely); and Della Monica/Kocon and probably Morand/Dorsaz in the pairs. In dance, so long as they have no injury issues, Hoffman/Zavozin seem like a done deal.

    Ryan Bradley has replaced Brandon Mroz (presumably as a result of the DuPage results)

    Brandon Mroz is still listed as the entry on the US Figure Skating website (international assignments page) and on the Nebelhorn website (men's entries).

    Men: i hope to see how Lambiel does on his return to international competition and would like to see how he is scored. personally would like to see Ryan bradley skate here than Mroz,; hopefully we won't be discussing why Fedor Andreev was not allowed to skate and who is to blame for it.

    Ladies: Suguri ( as much as I like her, I wish Nakano, Ando and Asada will represent Japan at the Olympics) and Sebestyen makes it look like a competition from 10 years ago. i wonder why people call Sebestyen granny, when Suguri is older than her. Would like to see Korpii skate, sorry not a fan of Czisny (too much hype and not substance to support that)

    Pairs: S/S (GER), V/M(UKR), M/R (RUS) in field, i know M/R have to perform at their best for getting the bronze, but they have a unique style and would really love them to perform a clean skate (if that happens would not care if they medal or not)

    Ice Dance: this competition will give us some indication of how judges are going to treat D/W, whether just as US no.2 or as world championships 4th placer. If former happens P/B (especially considering they are de-facto french No. 1)has a good chance to score better than the americans. would like to see how Riaznova and Tkachenko get along, if they do well they could be the next pairing to be targeted by Linichuck and Kasp... (can't bother to write that long name)team . Good luck to Hoffmann and Zavozin and hope they will qualify for olympics.

    Julia Sebestyen used to keep her hair short in a style more commonly seen on older women in central Europe, so she became known on skating message boards as "Granny Hair" or just "Granny". She had much longer hair this past season, so the nickname no longer fit.

    Fumie pulls out

    Suguri pulled out of this competition due to insufficient preparation, according to her words on web news.

    http://www.sanspo.com/sports/news/09...0850000-n1.htm

    She says the coach change is the cause of this.

    Since the JSF didn't submit substitute entries beside her, no alternate appearing. Akiko or Mai or Aki could have gone there, d***...
