I'm not sure if a thread has already been started about this, but I can't seem to find one. I've just checked the timetable for europeans and all events start with preliminary events this year. Does anyone know what they are and how they work? Is it like the old qualifying events to see who advances to the SP?
Also, does anyone know how many skaters advance to the FD/Free this year after last years 16 cut-off fiasco?
