Pechalat and Bourzat Withdraw from Skate Canada

Skate Canada has confirmed on Twitter that the French team of Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat have withdrawn from the second stop of the Grand Prix, taking place this weekend in Mississauga, Ontario. Bourzat was visibly fighting off bronchitis at Skate America last weekend, where the team was able to win the silver medal. Their third event of the series is scheduled to be at home at Trophee Eric Bompard, three weeks from now.

Skate Canada also announced that there is no plan to replace them; that leaves seven couples scheduled to compete.

I thought that might happen, as they will be at TEB. A friend of mine saw them in training awhile back and thought they would challenge D/W and V/M this year with the content of their programs but to me although the SD was good, their FD lacked pace and speed to me (but I know Bourzat was not 100%) but I did like the concept of the program parts 2, 3 and 4 of the program showed originality but I wished they did not use "The feeling begins" as part 1, there are loads of good tracks with egyptian themes around. BUT the Free Dance shows promise, could they possibly challenge this year. I have heard they have financial concerns and VERY surprised the French Federation cannot HELP!! - they are potential world medalists and defending european champiosn- cannot understand!!

It is a worry that Figure Skating is losing more grip and interest to the public.

Our friends at Street Legal TV have since transformed grandma into a serious quarter-mile contender, thanks to the Edelbrock 555 cid crate engine with fuel injection and a Victor Jr. Nitrous system. Now equipped with more than 1,050 horsepower, Grandma needed a proper fuel system and we show you how with Russell fuel system products.
