    Good. I wasn't paying close attention. Still, both of those GPs are scheduled late in the fall season (for L/S).


    Thanks for the additional info, Sylvia. Do any sources know at least what C/T's sp music will be?

    Oh, okay! Didn't know that. You learn something new every day.

    Dylan and Paige would be unlikely to team up because they jump in opposite directions. Dylan jumps counter clockwise, while Paige jumps clockwise, or reverse. I doubt friendship would hinder a pairing.

    I thought that Rudi also jumped counter clockwise, but maybe she didn't have any clockwise guys to skate with at that point.

    No, Rudi is also a clockwise jumper. Most pair coaches in Canada discourage opposite pairs.

    Bruno Marcotte mentioned at Skate Detroit that his sister, Julie, choreographed Castelli/Tran's SP to "Ain't No Sunshine" - source link is posted in the Marchei/Hotarek thread.
    ETA from the same article:
    He [Marcotte] added that Castelli, who mainly did Salchow and Axel throws with Shnapir, is also trying Lutz and flip throws.

    ^^ Interesting, Sylvia. I wonder if there were technical reasons related to height difference with Simon as to why Marissa' s jump repertoire with Simon was more limited?

    BTW, I also wonder if C/T' s Ain't No Sunshine program is with lyrics or instrumental, and either way, whose version?

    A famous opposite skating pair from the U.S. who enjoyed success was Kristi Y and Rudy G.

    I know there was one pair that jumped in opposite directions at the 2014 Olympics.. for some reason I thought it was Paige and Rudi, but I guess not.. anyone know? I think they were lower-ranked, like around 15th or so.

    Tried to find this in the thread within a thread, but failed.

    Not crazy about pairs, but "Ain't No Sunshine". As in the one and only Mr. Bill Withers?

    There wasn't one. I can't recall seeing an opposite jumping pair since Vise/Trent have retired.

    Someone tried to tell me that Italy had a reverse team but I couldn't find any evidence of one.

    Sadly it's not their music choice after all. I'm still not looking forward to vocals but that would have been an exception...oh well!
