Good lead for Virtue/Moir and very close as expected between Crone/Poirier and Weaver/Poje. Teams 4-9 are also very close - kinda surprised to see Ralph/Hill so low. Should be a great battle in the OD and FD between all teams.
Personally I expected Ralph/Hill to be about 7th after the CD. The top 6 teams all beat them in the CD at nationals last year.
Ralph/Hill have never been that good at CDs. Being behind Harvey/Gagnon and Routhier/Saucke-Lacelle is a bit of a surprise.
Otherwise the top 9 is pretty much as expected.

Huge score for Virtue/Moir. Which dance was this?
I believe it was the Tango Romantica.
That's surprising to me.

Yes, I thought so too. However C&P probably are faster with deeper edges than W&P. In any case, they are going into the OD nearly tied.
C/P have outstanding CDs - for their age. I remember at World's last year the Eurosport commentators were just blown away by them. I was expecting to see them in second place and I am glad they are. Hopefully, Ralph and Hill can make up some ground

Just from pics Kaitlyn looked like she was forcing it a bit, while C&P looked pretty confident.
