2018 Nebelhorn Trophy takes place Sep. 26-29 in Oberstdorf, Germany. One of the oldest competitions in figure skating, Nebelhorn celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.
A total of 41 athletes are currently slated to compete in Oberstdorf: 10 men, 16 ladies, eight pairs and nine dance teams.
Canada′s Keegan Messing will go up against Alexander Majorov of Sweden, America′s Alexei Krasnozhon and Paul Fentz of Germany.
Marin Honda and Mai Mihara of Japan will face off against Loena Hendrickx of Belgium and Mariah Bell of the U.S. No Russian ladies are currently scheduled to compete at this competition.
Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim of the U.S. are best bets to capture gold in this relatively inexperienced pairs field.
In ice dance, Canada’s Piper Gilles and Paul Poirier are the highest-ranked team and should easily claim their first Challenger Series title at this event. Two American teams will also be vying for a place on the podium: Rachel Parsons and Michael Parsons (second at 2018 Lombardia Trophy) and Christina Carreira and Anthony Ponomarenko (second at 2018 U.S. International Classic).
Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot will perform in the exhibition gala on Saturday evening.
The annual exams for ISU judges will take place during this competition.
