    I vote for 12 spots, but with 4 assigned to "little countries" or some other wording. Because at the moment, what do you see on the Grand Prix? Russia. America. China. Canada. Japan. France. Every now and again a random nationality like Italy, Kazakhstan, or Spain.

    I vote for giving the smaller skating nations something to aim for. Something more than just Senior Bs.

    Oh it's designed that way more or less intentionally. And all the prize money then goes back to those same federations.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    I very much hope this is true!

    It's official: Misha Ge is listed for COR on the ISU site!

    No replacement yet at TEB for Besseghier, though

    Are the team with Boyadji eligible for GP?

    I'm pretty sure they don't plan to fill that spot, as it seems they won't replace neither Chafik Besseghier, nor Lenaelle Gilleron.

    I'm going to TEB this year, but it might be the last year!

    Edit: My bad Prölß/Blommaert are on the list now Congrats for them

    Very excited for Misha Ge. His enthusiasm for the sport and for other skaters is so charming. I'm glad he's getting this opportunity.

    best news of the day.
    great for them.
    it was so funny to see them at nebelhorn, explaining in which possibilities they might get a grand prix spot next season,...

    rock the field!

    Congrats to Proelss/Blommaert, they deserve it!

    Shame they couldn't have filled the Ladies and Men spots as well.

    Host picks are entirely at the organiser's discretion, IIRC. Don't Fancy/Boyadji represent the UK, though?
