    Valentina wrote a note for all her fans on facebook (please let me know if I translated something wrong!!):

    Hi everybody,
    I started to skate with a post-injury precautions and calm.
    I'm ready to start again, in all respects.
    Detroit is going to be my new training base until the Sochi Olympics, Jason Dungjen and Yuka Sato will be my new coaches, and Pasquale Camerlengo my new choreographer. I didn't go away from Morozov for technical reasons, but for organizational ones. I need a stable training base and coaches always present. Constant travels were too expensive and tiring, both mentally and physically. I am very happy I've found such an organized and warm team in Detroit, I'm very serene and confident about my choice.
    The team Morozov has been my "family" for three years and the precious lessons of Nikolai enriched my technical and artistical background. Skating in America, Lettonia,Russia and Japan has been a wonderful experience. The group multiethnicity, the coexistence of different cultures made me mature in all respects. All of this will always remain in my heart!
    A lot of new projects to realize are coming soon.
    Valentina

    Wheee, they did a great job of it with their Tango SP last year. They're quickly becoing one of my fave pairs.

    Berton/Hotarek already have an ice dance look to their skating. They are really special. I hope they have a kick ass season.

    Why Adagio though? :wall:

    The accident sounds scary but it's probably very common when learning the triple twist.

    I completely agree, I've become a fan since the first time I saw them skate. They're also great people, both down to earth and highly motivated, they always give me the impression of being exhactly aware of what they want and how they can achieve it. IMO if they keep this spirit they can do great things.
    I've seen Ondrej giving lessons every Sunday for two years and he's a very patien coach, and super cute with the little kids. :) I remember once he was teaching to a very little kid who was wearing a helmet and falling all the time, and Ondrey was behind him catching him every time he fell. (uhm this last sentence has some mistakes but I can't find them, I hope you guys got the meaning)

    you are welcome!
    I think (my personal speculation) that Carolina, who is going to do 3 GP (and maybe the GPF) , is not going to do any senior b competition.

    I've found this show: The Pine Ice Gala
    http://www.idealweb.tv/sport/ice_gala_pine/ice_gala.php

    Is in two part. Primo tempo (Firt part) and Secondo tempo (Second part). For see the second part push "secondo tempo".

    You can see:
    First Part:
    30.11 Kolbe-Caruso
    then Paolo Bacchini
    Then Guignard - Fabbri
    42.00 Cappellini-Lanotte (new SD. I think)
    Then Samuel Contesti.

    Second Part:
    31.08 Guignard - Fabbri (maybe new SD?)
    38.38 Kolbe-Caruso
    then Tobel
    Then a part in wich the three dance couple do some "compulsory". They made a couple change too. (Kolbe-Lanotte, Cappellini-Fabbri, Guignard-Caruso)
    53.22 Paolo Bacchini
    58.00 Cappellini-Lanotte (tango)
    then Samuel Contesti
    Then the final

    I have seen Valentina a lot at DSC and she is doing wonderful! She has amazing speed and her jumps and spins are really nice. I think working with Yuka has helped! She is on the same session with Alissa Czisny, Adam Rippon, Jeremy Abbott and others.

    i wished it would be, but a fear it´s just an exhibition; this program ist just brilliant; but morozov once made a competition program out of an exhibition, let´s hope :D

    It looked like a partial FD to me.

    All that was missing was the second footwork sequence, dance spin, and the 4th lift.

    Morozov didn't choreograph for Anna and Luca, they made their programs in Italy.

    Anyone know what Samuel Contesti is skating to this season?
    Or is he keeping the same programs? :yikes:
    Please say it isn't so.
    I was looking at his programs' history and it looks like he recycles them quite a bit. The Andes program he's had for 2 seasons already. :blah:
    Or maybe he's not skating this season? :confused:
