Tripping on the Podium
Because of the OLY gold Evan can show up and skate at U. S. Nationals without any preceding competitions. However, he does need to compete at some international event to gain the minimum TES scores for the short program and free skate in order to compete at 4CC or the Olympics. I don't remember the exact cut off date for meeting the minimum TES but it is around January 27 so there are some options like Ice Challenge Graz and Golden Spin Zagreb.
