Men not reached 21, Lady not reached 19 by the cut-off date. Men's age is going to be reduced to 19 soon, though (not sure if next season or the season after).

Age changes don't go into effect until after the Olympic season, so 2014-2015.
That's when there will be lots more changes in pair and dance partnerships as the ladies outgrow the men, and possibly more injuries too. Men in their midteens don't often have the upper body muscle development to enable them to lift partners close to their size.
Either that, or we're going to see lots of little people ladies in pairs and ice dance!
Do you perhaps also remember if the GP age being raised to 15 (so you won't be able to do GP one year before doing other Senior events) comes into effect next season or the season after?
Pretty sure all those changes go into effect after the Olympics.

Do they have any chances on catching the team for Sochi?
Very slim. Riazanova/Tkachenko might not be the most dynamic or memorable team but they did place 4th at Euros.

I like S/B and P/C a great deal. Think that 1-2 is correct.
I like both teams as well, but the French team has the "it" factor.
