Checking Senior Bs for TES mins...
My gut says that Lewis/McMillan were probably penciled in for Bangkok along with Veillon/Brandys, but that whatever reason is behind them withdrawing from the Next Gen simulated competition is serious enough to have meant they wouldn't be ready for the first JGP. Skate Canada clearly intended on sending their strongest junior skaters from last season to Bangkok - which is why Morita, Long and Shi got the assignments in Men and Women.Great summary. I totally agree with you regarding the novice teams. I was quite surprised that they sent a novice team to JGP #1 Bangkok before they saw them skate at the NextGen camp, especially when there are known teams that are significantly better. Novice Nationals was a little disappointing last year as the top teams seemed weaker than previous years and they continue to show it through Jr. But they have time to develop. Just seems like SC jumped the gun on sending them, especially when there are teams in the regular Junior dance comp that are stronger and may be added to the NextGen team.
