leave no stone unturned
International Challenge Cup - The Hague, Mar 8-11
I didnt find a thread about it so
but I got suprised cause I thought this event had disappeared.
This is the event page http://www.schaatsen.nl/
This year according to twitter https://twitter.com/#!/SylviaUnseen
the entry list is here
USA is sending Abott and Alissa
France is sending Joubert, Amodio and Lena
Andrian Schultheiss is on the list too , Victoria Helgerson and Liebers.
and I m huge surprised about Carolina Kostner participating after so many competitions this year.
Sigh, I could have gone if I was still in Belgium :(

I'm at a loss as to why Abbott & Czisny are being sent?
Both are, after all, headed to Worlds. Are they going to stay in Europe all March and train there???
Off the ice
I would be very surprised if everyone currently on the entries list will actually compete. So maybe you'll miss out on less than you think?

Wow, I just saw the entry list!!! Jason and Alissa must have been really serious about wanting 4CC, to take another, relatively random, competition before Worlds instead! But I think that's really crazy timing! Just two weeks before Worlds!
And Carolina is possibly an even bigger surprise; she's done 3 GPs + the final + Euros, has Worlds coming up and now another one? Her team must really have 'competing as often as possible' on top of their strategy list.
Now I feel like I should go since I'm so close... but I'm already going to Nice!
EDIT: another remarkable discovery on the entry list: Adrian Schultheiss.. wasn't he still too injured at the time of Euros?

Yes, it will be interesting to see if he can compete already! He was also listed on Nordic Championships last weekend but didn't want to participate because he was only able to jump doubles then. Maybe the Swedish federation will decide based on this competition which one they'll send to Worlds, Schultheiss or Majorov?

Does anyone know the schedule? This competition is just too close to resist I was going to be in The Hague for other reasons anyway, until the 8th, so maybe I can extend my stay for one or two days and watch the skating.
