Apparently V/T are having an open practice tomorrow (Aug 9) at the Italian Baselga de Pine rink; perhaps at some point soon there will be feedback on what the programs look like, and if totally horrific, maybe changes will be made.

So no reports on the V&T training?
What's the latest on whether the Russian test skates will be "open" and posted? Hope so. Prior seasons, has been fascinating to watch the programs and the progress.
Junior singles test skates are starting today in Novogorsk
There will be a practice session of Volosozhar/Trankov and Bazarova/Larionov open to the media on Wed, Aug 14. I am planning to go. Can't go to the Junior test skates though as I'm busy at the IAAF Worlds. I'm just lucky that not much is going on on Wednesday at the Athletics event.
