    Free Dance Preview and Virtual Program Nov.6 2:00 am

    Pechalat and Bourzat are carrying such a lead into the free dance, that it seems that they have this competition wrapped up. It would appear that their strategy of multiple outings for their programs early in the season has paid off, and the switch two weeks ago to the Dr. Zhivago soundtrack for their SD were very smart. In fact, it is entirely likely that the order of finish after the free dance will be just the same as after the short dance.

    They would have scored a bit higher in the SD, if Max hadn't missed his hold on his foot in the twizzles.

    He had problems with his 2nd twizzle, making it impossible to do the third twizzle for level 4. They also got a one point deduction, perhaps for a lift that went too long?

    They were some 6 points lower in the SD than Pechalat and Bourzat due to TES alone, due to his catching his skate in her dress in the second segment of the Golden Waltz during one of the step segments used to determine the level of the Golden Waltz second segment. They only scored Level 2 in the midline step, also.

    Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat FRN (Ranked 2nd by the ISU) 64.12 in the SD

    FD City Lights - Medley - London Symphonic Orchestra
