I was hoping Camden would get Salt Lake City
That doesn't look like it's 'on ice' though. It looks like Nathan is on roller blades on concrete. It's an excellent backflip, though, especially if he just learned it.
Those definitely look like blades, not wheels.That doesn't like it's 'on ice' though. It looks like Nathan is on roller blades on concrete.

Yes. Nathan's original IG post/clip: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1CH0-Wno4d/ (some of the skater comments are )Not sure about the surface, though. Is this the outdoor rink at Sun Valley?
Nathan's back flip clip was posted by Nathan himself on his Instagram yesterday and was learned AFTER the show (on Sunday morning). Pro skater Ashley Clark taught him in one session, apparently (her Instagram story on Sunday morning was copied for posterity here): https://twitter.com/aboutNathan0505/status/1160614772963856385
Ah okay, now it looks like ice!
I guess this is probably unofficial, but the Nebelhorn Trophy's page, does list a couple of the planned competitors (translation provided by Google - so if spelling/grammar/weird errors, blame the bot):
"... The popular American Jason Brown wants to present his new freestyle on "Schindler's List" in Germany for the first time in front of an audience."
Thx. It looks like the US men, despite having Pulkinen, Alexei, and Tomoki going senior, still have 4 men with a shot of placing top 4-5, or even medal in the first few jgps. Maybe that's the reason USFS is holding off announcing assignments for the JGP Russia. They want to save spots for the top finishers, while leaving spots for others like maybe Sjoberg or HsiehTop Junior Men scores thus far- (and top novice scores)
