    I'm very happy about Nicole and Matteo tonight. They skated very well and got their SB. Wish them all the best tomorrow.

    Just crazy what you can do on four wheels! I think the ice is so much easier (and maybe more forgiving?) so this definitely must give Matteo an edge

    Ok, I did hear many times thru commentaries during competitions that Mateo once was the world champ of roller skating, but tbh I didn't know he was that good! I didn't even know roller skaters do almost the same pair elements in figure skating; twists, lifts, death spiral, pair spin, even sbs jumps! Amaging. Thanks a lot for the link.

    I do have a soft spot for this team. What is admirable about them for me is I could see their skating has been improving every time I see them at the Euros and Worlds. And Nicole and Mateo has surprised me, even shocked me, in a good way of course , with the way they skated at this season's Euro, really. Quite much enjoyed their skating, especially Mateo's much improved skating, their better body lines/postures and better unison. And most of all, their attitude caring and trusting each other which is something needed the most for a true pair team, since they do dangerours elements such as lifts, twists and throws. In Bratislava, they skated two lovely programs, kept on performing till the end with or without mistake, I thought. Our commentary (J-Sports) at the Euro said that training with Tatiana/Maxim during summer did help them tremendously; they spent only 2 weeks with the reigning Olympic champions, but they were inspired and motivated very much by being able to watch closely how these champions train on and off ice, both mentally and physically every day.

    Good luck to Nicole and Mateo at the upcoming Worlds in Boston!

    I didn't know they had their own thread here!

    They have improved sooo much over the last 2 yrs, I hope they can regroup and skate as they are capable of @ Worlds in Helsinki!

    Here is a cute interview with them (Italian only, sorry!) about how they teamed up and how is their every day life (the way he talks about their daily routine is soo funny )

    This couple really have improved over the years, to the point where they are now real challengers to M/H for Italian No. 1. I always look forward to seeing them skate. I think their best programme has been their SP to Magnificant, I believe they are bringing this back for the Olympic season. I wish them the best of luck for the upcoming season. What is the music in the FS clip?

    Matteo & Nicole got 2nd place in Lombardia Trophy just 5 points behind Zabijako/Enbert (who skated really well) and 10 points ahead of Vale & Ondrej. Their only major error: they had a perfectly synchronized fall on their sbs triple toes in their free. Pairs magic!
    Nice season start... and happy birthday to Matteo!

    I really enjoyed their SP this year and so did the ESP commentators. I haven't really paid much attention to this pair before but during the SP at Worlds I did. And btw, thanks for the links to the roller skating - i had never seen anyhthing like it and had no idea they do more or less the same pair elements as ice skaters.

    There is one thing they really need to improve for next year though: THOSE COSTUMES. The FS onesies were so hideous

    It has been announced today by the Ministry of Interior that both Nicole and Matteo will be enrolled in the sport group of Italian State Police.

    This means they will get a monthly salary from now on. This will be helpful for them now they have decided to continue.
