Here are a little news from Mozer’s group. Previously Nina Mozer told that Volosozhar and Trankov won’t rush the beginning of new season. And according to this small comment this plan is still actual:

We won’t perform next season. Maximum we’ll start it from the Russian Nationals. – Trankov said.

We will start to prepare not earlier than in October, for a National Championship. – Mozer proved.

the sourse: rsport.ru So, almost for sure we won’t see Volosozhar / Trankov at Grand-prix. Honestly, with all respect to Olympic champions I don’t like such strategy. It’s not really sporting. If you want to continue skating, skate, from the beginning of the season. If you don’t feel ready for full commitment then don’t come back. Sounds tough? Maybe. But I really don’t like such selective approach to competitions. As for Stolbova / Klimov:

Ksenia and Fedor plan to start the season at Finlandia Trophy. – Mozer said.

the sourse: rsport.ru Of course, plans can change, but think it’s a right decision to start the season from b event. Ksenia and Fedor need to prove to the judges that they’re ready to fight, ready to show their maximum at every competition.

    I think TV and MT are scared of KS and FK. (But face it who isn’t afraid of Ksenia?). I doubt Tatiana and Maxim are going to compete much bc they are slipping fast.
    I really hope KS and FK get back on their feet fast. They had a rough second half of the season and I know at full speed they could be world champions.

  2. I think Volosozhar and Trankov chose such schedule because of objective reasons,not because they are lasy.The fans of this pair would be glad to see them at least from the Nationals event.I’m happy for Ksenia and Fedor,so they are in good shape and motivated.

    • Of course they have reasons for such decision. Age, injuries. But with such high level of competition and technical difficulty in pair skating, few solid skates won’t be enough. Especially without quads or triple-triple combination. And I think in this case judges won’t take into consideration that they’re Olympic Champions. Sochi is over and another “Plushenko move” won’t work. So, if they really want to fight for another Olympic medal (and I mean in individual competitions, not team event) they need more then 1-2 good performances in a season. Just my thoughts.

      • I absolutely agree with you. It is like said Oleg Vasiliev in one interview- sportsmen of such level always think they can manage to do it- they believe in themselves. Anyway it will be wonderful to see them competing, showing their programms.

        • Yes, I really liked their programs this season. Actually it’s almost for the first time when I liked both their programs! That’s why I was so sad that such great programs happened when they alredy have lost a hunger for competitions and medals…..there was no former fire in their skating(
