Wow a new thread. I'm thinking of going to Euros to see them... no tickets to Japan Worlds :( I am not really sure about Minsk though :shuffle:

I'm happy we have our thread back!
It was one of the top highlights of my year that I saw them live in Grenoble. I'm an even bigger fan than before as if this was possible. I looooooooove their new programs and I hope we get to see their programs from Nationals 😍😍😍

Please do tell us more about your live experience.
So I think to inaugurate this thread we should all bask in Guillaume's new gorgeous photos:

I'm hoping for gorgeous extra slow mo like last year at French Nationals but the recording of James/Cipres SP was really bad yesterday so I'm not hopeful.

Pairs and Dance categories won't be broadcasted on Facebook though but on the channel RMC Sport 2.

I like Gabi's new hairdo for the RD, but I'm not sure about Guillaume's shirt...something needs to break up the all-black of the outfits, and the lace was doing the job nicely. It can't be down to Gabi's lipstick and nail polish alone! :)

In all seriousness, though, they did a good job, especially upping their level on the TR1 pattern (I tend to view a T grade as a positive, ie the steps are right and the team is on their way to the next level, just need to get the timing cleaner). The performance has bumped up a notch even since IdeF, too.

I highly recommend this Instagram account dedicated to Gabriella and guillaume, photos and quotes are really beautiful, the layout is very neat, art is everywhere!

I don't know much about the technical aspects of ice dance, but this pair is like watching moving art - the shapes and feeling and color of emotions expressed. A completely pleasant and moving experience.

So apparently Rachel Yamagata did watch P/C's FD and loved it. How nice ! https://twitter.com/rachaelyamagata/status/1074028613362728962
I think it's the first time an artist they skated to recognize their work. Of course I'm not talking about Beethoven or Mozart :D but Ezio Bosso, Cinematic Orchestra, Aldo Lopez and so on never did I think.

BTW, now we have this thread back what does everyone think of their programs ? We have shared our opinions here and there but mainly in the K&C section during the İDF which is not accessible to everyone.
I can't believe we'll see those programs just 2 more times, well actually 3 as Gaby mentioned they would participate to the Team Event this year but the pressure isn't the same and Gaby and Guillaume are always at their best when it is a high stake event like Worlds or Euros.

@cocotaffy I'll comment on it and also tell about Grenoble as soon as I have some time! Too busy at the moment 😕
But I fall in love with both programs the moment I saw them. I may love the FD a bit more, it's more I could have hoped for! But the RD is sooooo great, too!
Does anybody knows if Guillaume is injured? It seemed so after both programs 🤔

I thought they were very breathless after both routines and then I thought : is it because of the altitude? Morgan C mentioned it was a tough factor (in their interview after their FP).

Altitude is a killer for skaters. I’m guessing too that they are a touch behind conditioning wise because of Guillaume’s injury.

I wonder why they didn't use it for the competition but I like the break in the black. I also can't believe I'm saying this but I miss the see through flamenco shirt. This velvet one isn't anything special maybe he wanted to feel warm :D

Can whoever organised the French nats gala be put in charge of organising the next TDF gala also? It looked all kinds of awesome.

Same person, but IMO, you can do things when it's nationals that are not permitted by the ISU.
That person always has interesting ideas.
