    They have both aged out. Cipres turned 19 in April and Richardeau will turn 20 this week.

    Article from Le Progrès de Lyon.


    Hustle and bustle in Charlemagne

    Muriel Boucher, assisted by Romain Haguenauer and Olivier Schoenfelder is holding the traditional summer camp

    A dozen of couples, not counting individual figure skaters, have come from Japan, Spain, Italy and Switzerland, increasing the ranks of students at the ice sports center of Lyon-Charlemagne. The objective of this major daily rout (until August 28) from 6 am to 2pm is to set up the new choreographies, polish the glide for some, form new couples for others, like for these trying-out Japanese, Emi Haira / Taiyo Mizutani.

    The task may be a little less difficult but equally complicated before the season opening in early October (Masters of Orleans) since ice dancing has made its revolution. It has removed from its 2010-2011 regulations the tedious and uninvinting compulsory dances that traditionnally opened the ball of dance events. From now on, the compulsories will be included in the short program, the late original dance.

    "This is another vision and that's very interesting for us," say the coaches, helped by choreographer Diana Ribas and Marina Morel (first partner of the Olympic champion Gwendal Peizerat) who has created her dance floor company 'T2L & 3D' "The goal in a 2mn50 program is to integrate a minute of a compulsory in a choreographic concept. The technical specialists will assign scores. And when an edge is not correct, the score will be zero. This new regulation will penalise the skaters who don't have a good technical level. We can only praise that ! » "

    Financially, the dancers are rubbing their hands with glee : "That's three costumes less per season", observes mischeviously the young couple on the rise Pernelle Carron / Lloyd Jones.

    This season, Pernelle (24) and Lloyd (22) have set their sights on the "Valse à mille temps" from Jacques Brel for the short program and a medley of the Rolling Stones, revisited half classic, half-bolero for the free dance.

    After the retirements on the world stage of Delobel-Schoenfelder, sixth at the Olympic Games in 2010, the Russians Domnina Shabalin, 3rd, and Israelis Alexandra & Roman Zaretsky, 10th, the french champions Carron-Jones (9th Bompard, 12th the Euro and the world) want to access quickly the top of the pyramid.

    "To shake up the hierarchy, we must take risks," notes Romain Haguenauer, "Therefore Pernelle and Lloyd chose Brel. This waltz is very difficult because it goes crescendo and requires speed. "

    Filled with excitement, the duo will dispute the Masters (1st-2 October), the Coupe de Nice (13-17 October) and the two ISU Grand Prix where it will aim at least at a podium: Skate Canada (29-31 October) and Bercy (26-28 November).

    J´aime le musique de Jaques Brel! I am also a bit suspicious if Pernelle an Lloyd are mature enough to interpret it, but I am also more than happy if I am wrong. Long live the voids!

    From a Champs Camp miscellaneous news article link posted in the Champs Camp thread:
    Brian Orser said Brian Joubert's time at Toronto's Cricket Club this summer was brief but productive. "He came and got his programs done with David Wilson at another rink, and worked with us for two weeks. We did get a lot of work done; he loved the environment here. He's a nice, nice guy, and he worked hard. I was very impressed." Joubert, like Evgeni Plushenko, has been criticized for lacking transitions in his programs, and that was an area they targeted: "I think Brian has a better understanding of transitions; he knows they can actually be fun, if you understand them. He worked on his skating skills. Tracy [Wilson] holds stroking classes and he was involved with them."

    They have high hopes for C/J ' but unfortunately he still has a lot of catching up to improve to her standard IMO .Also there's also the little matter of P/B who hopefully will place higher this year being the French number one's at last !Have Lyon forgotten about P/B ?

    J'aime aussi. And I don't think Monsieur Lloyd can skate fast enough for the end of that song, but we'll see.

    I am sure that Olivier can teach him a thing or two to improve his technique.

    I guess most of us here are very much aware of that. Because I was the one that loved their choice of the music, doubted if they are mature enough to interpret this great music, and would more than love to be wrong in my doubts, I just feel I am sorry if this discussion turns negative. C/J are promising, they know surely that is s a long way to go in ice dancing. I wish them all the best.

    (And Lloyd is such an eye-candy...)

    This is a fan forum, for fans to talk to other fans about skating. Skaters are wise to avoid coming here. Their families and friends should, too. Anyone who think PRlady's comment was upsetting is going to be really unhappy with things that get said here.

    No offense intended, I also think your son or whatever he is is quite cute, so we'll just pretend I never posted such an awful personal attack.

    They don't have to use the fastest parts, because the song is longer than the SD. Midway it is already pretty fast though, so probably the Golden Waltz would be at the beginning. I can't imagine anyone skating the Golden Waltz at that speed, however great their progress has been during the off-season.

    I think Lloyd can handle that. Or he will by the end of the season.
    He has changed a lot in one season ! Remember last year, at the beginning, he looked like a rabbit caught by a car. By the end of the season, he was much more present. After a summer's work, I hope he has improved as much as during last year's season !

    A recent article on Fabian & Nathalie. Makes me wonder: what about Nebelhorn Trophy, they were supposed to skate there.

    Amodio goes to Morozov.

    Amodio is now trained by Morozov.

    Don't have the time to translate this video interview posted on Cergy club's website (Amodio's club).
    It says Morozov has choreographed his 2 programs.
    He's been training with him this summer, been back in France from mid-August (after Moscow's fires) to now and is to return to Moscow until the Masters.

    It's interesting to me that they have 3(!) comps before their first GP event. I suppose it's critical in ice dance, but it makes for a long season.

    Did he say it's a "coach change from Bernard Glesser" or just an intern base?

    Amodio came to Daugavpils (Latvia) yesterday.
    Nikolai Morozov's training base is there now.
