Reasons why the 'Stepukin' twizzles failed at Skate America
The first innovation in twizzles were debuted by S/B this season! The first part of the twizzle sequence is done in a sit position. It recived level 1 in both SD and FD but in a weird twist judges gave them almost unanimous +2 and +3 GOE on them!
These are two theories as to why the twizzles failed in getting above level 1

According to Tanith Belbin on Ice Network, it was because each set of twizzles starts on the same edge. She said all they need to do is change the edge on the entrance to one set and they would be fine.
