From a reliable French source, Brian Joubert has won the test-skate to determine the second mens entry for the World Championships next week. Alban Preaubert is the first alternate to the team. More details as they become available.
Also, don't be surprised if the reason behind Yannick Ponsero's withdrawal had nothing to do with my previous suggestion that he hadn't been training regularly after the European Championships; rather, it has been suggested that Ponsero felt Joubert was going to win no matter how they skated, so he didn't waste his time.
