The three top Canadian pairs will be duking it out here! That should provide a spike of energy and excitement.

Also, three of the top four American pairs will be wanting to show their best. I don't know why I don't say they're duking it out. Whatever you call it, their participation adds to the juiciness and allure of the event too.

Three pairs from Australia too! This is abundance. I'm looking forward to seeing Harley Windsor with his new partner.

And Balazs Nagy with his new partner for Hungary! More suspense. I'll mention Karina and Luka, skating for Georgia, whom I enjoyed at an earlier event.

All the best to all the competitors!

This looks like a very interesting competition.

Well done to Australia for fielding 3 Pairs, it could be their national championship. I’ve been very impressed G/GM on the JGP and it will be interesting to see how Harley Windsor skates with his new partner.

A big battle for the North American teams. Personally I’d like to see C/J come out on top but I’d imagine the judges will be favouring K/F and J/R. MT/M have been a mess this season, they need a strong skate, they really haven’t handled the presence of J/R well at all.

Best of luck to both Georgian teams, this could be a mini Olympic battle for them.

I'll mention Karina and Luka, skating for Georgia, whom I enjoyed at an earlier event.
Yes, I haven't been aware of Karina/Luka, so I checked. They are a nice-looking team. I'm also captivated by the other team from GEO: Metelkina/Parkman (whom I saw I think for the first time at an event this fall).

Here's Karina/Luka early this season at Nebelhorn:

Despite the one botched lift, Karina/Luka are a well-matched, promising team. At the end, Luka was so upset about the missed lift (reminds me of how upset veteran, Eric Radford was with his missed lift with Vanessa at IDF, when they were on pace to make the podium). Luka also nearly fell out of his position during the death spiral, so a lot of seasoning is needed, but it's exciting to see these interesting pairings who have wonderful potential.

Here's Stasia Metelkina & Daniil Parkman at Budapest Trophy. They possess a raw power and energy, fueled in large part I think by Parkman's seeming larger than life personality, his large frame, and the way he moves over the ice so passionately and uniquely. His hair was OTT here, but that's okay. I think he's toned it down since. LOL!

Of course, both Georgian teams are young and rough around the edges, but both appear to have exciting potential. Stasia/Daniil for me are reminiscent of the style and kinetic energy we saw in James/Cipres, and they are to some degree physically reminiscent of Savchenko/Massot.

Really hope that Evelyn and Trennt have a better outing here, regardless of scores in comparison to J/R and M-T/M - I just hope they have a performance that shows off their hard work and is something they can be proud of

So, I have a few minutes to watch here, and have turned on the stream, only to find myself in an endless loop of something called Phantasy Garden. Have there been skates worth rewinding the tape for, while I wait?

Really hoping Kirsten and Michael are back close to their old form. If they drop behind Evelyn and Trent here it will not help their confidence going into Nationals at all. Also would love to see Vanessa and Eric put together 2 good programs.
