So I have not been to Torino how is it for hotels around venue etc?

There are a few hotels within 10 minutes walk of the venue, but the Lingotto Metro station that was supposed to open for the 2006 Olympics finally opened in 2011 so you could stay in the Porta Nuova area and get the metro to the Lingotto metro station near the venue (9 minutes from Porta Nuova to Lingotto).

The Palavela kind of sucks as an arena though. No backs on seats on the sections nearest the ice and you will essentially be sitting on concrete so bring a cushion. Real lack of toilets too.....

Oh no, Palavela? :yikes:

I already had a 2-week trip planned around Strasbourg. Time to update the plan. :drama:

I was looking forward to going to Strasbourg. Not nearly as enthusiastic about Torino. Especially given what people have said about the arena.

I'm so excited! I've been living in Southeast Asia for a few years, and it looks like I'll be in Europe this winter. I'll finally have a chance to see some live skating. When do tickets usually go on sale for the GPF?

I started a separate thread on March 27 in GSD here: ISU Grand Prix 2019/20 and provisional dates for 2020/21

Bumping this thread up to post the link to the 2019 JGP announcement document... (we had a 2018 pre-season JGP general discussion thread in GSD last year that could be started later, maybe after the individual JGP Announcements are published online?).

RUS only entered 3 pairs the last time they had a JGP (swept the podium at Cup of Mordovia 2016).

ETA trivia note: Only 3 of the 10 pairs are still skating together (2nd Boikova/Kozlovskii RUS, 4th Ferland/Matte CAN, 6th Digerness/Neudecker USA).

Yes. That’s been the case for a while. I think they only entered 3 or 4 the last time they hosted one.

I assume it's a decision based on funding; the federation has to pay for travel/etc for skaters selected for a JGP. I can imagine that cost becomes super-expensive for an unlimited amount of skaters, even if it is in their own country.
