    Kristina GORSHKOVA / Vitali BUTIKOV withdrawn - illness (cold, flu or so).
    No substitute.

    That's awful. Only 9. It's not like there is a real lack of dance teams. Dance has deteriorated but not to 9 teams and more pairs than dance. Because of Cd in the sd there is a lack of juniors who can do seniors but this wasn't so bad in the past.

    Real difference in Dance to Men, Ladies and Pairs is that for Dance Junior and Senior programs are very different.
    Because of this Junior dance couples will not take place in Senior Nationals.
    Result is lack of competitors.

    In other three disciplines (Men, Ladies, Pairs) many competitors are Juniors or even pre-Juniors (only 7 of 18 Ladies, 13 of 18 Men, 7 of 12 Pairs are eligible by age for Euro and Worlds). Because of this it is no problem to fill the spots.

    Junior Ice Dancers in Russian Nationals cannot compete in Seniors
    unlike in singles and Pairs, thats why its very few

    my prediction

    1 Bobrova/Soloviev
    2 Ilinykh/Katsalapov
    3 Sinitsina/Zhiganshin
    4 Riazanova/Tkachenko
    5 Pushkash/Guerreiro

    how did M/K got 3rd ? Their height similarity alone is bothersome R/T in 5th really ? I hope S/Z will move up for bronze

    I don't mind their similar height and I thought they skated very well. Anyway the margin between 3rd and 5th is small so nothing has been decided yet. I thought Elena and Nikita should be first they skated their best SD so far this season while B/S were tight and there was the twizzle error
    To be honest I never thought R/T are top skaters material. They lack any kind of improvement since their debut season on the international stage IMO. They skate fast but a bit frenetic with lots of upper body movement and that's about it. And they love waltz
    Both M/K and S/Z show more promise and I was kind of expecting the Russian federation would drop them
